Cinco De Mayo Celebration at Gurnee Mills

Cinco De Mayo

After that long and cold winter, there is nothing I want more than to be on a sunny beach in Mexico with a drink in my hand. However, if I had to be in Lake County I would love a good FIESTA!

This year Telemundo Chicago has sponsored the entertainment stage at Gurnee Mills Mall. They have decided for the first time ever to host a free and family- friendly event to celebrate the Mexican holiday of Cinco De Mayo.   The Cinco De Mayo Party will be this Sunday, May 4th from 12pm- 5pm.  The celebration will be located on and around the stage near the G-Entrance of the mall. For those not familiar with Gurnee Mills Mall, Burlington Coat Factory and Shopper’s World are located near this entrance.

The all-day cultural event will feature food samplings and giveaways. Your family will bailar (dance) along to the local Latino musical groups playing on the stage.  Some of these groups include Mariachi bands, Los Panchis, Banda Tierra Nueva, and Hershey y Su Norteño Banda.

In addition to the celebration, Gurnee Mills has a variety of things the whole family will enjoy. They have 200+ discount stores and multiple restaurants and dining options.  Your whole family will enjoy laser tag, mini-golfing and ice-skating at Rink Side and watching the new Spider-Man movie at Gurnee Marcus Cinema. Toddlers will enjoy running around the Chicago themed play area.

So what are you waiting for?! ¡Acompanos at the Cinco De Mayo Celebration!
