Celebrating Cinco de Mayo last year on Mill Avenue.
At absolutely no point over the next 72 hours or so should you have to ask the question, ¿Dónde está la partido este fin de semana? (or "Where is the party this weekend?" for you monolinguists). ¿Por qué? Because there are going to be an exhaustive amount of celebrations occurring in honor of Cinco de Mayo, that's why. (Heck, our annual drinking and party guide is filled with dozens upon dozens of these same events found across the Valley.)

But if you're in the mood for something more than just the same old cervezas -- like maybe a chaser of cultura to go with your Corona -- here's seven must-see Cinco celebrations to consider.

Crescent Ballroom
DJ Seduce is planning to loading up the sound system at the Crescent with a surfeit of sweet Latin sounds during his Cinco de Mayo spin session at the venue starting at 8 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. Bartenders will be equally busy serving $3 Mexican beers, sangria, and tequila all night long beginning at 6 p.m. Admission to the event is free.

Cinco de Mayo Phoenix Festival
This annual two-day block party in downtown Phoenix marks its 20th anniversary this year and is planning a ginormous fiesta celebrating of the occasion, as well as the Cinco de Mayo holiday itself.

Hours are 2 p.m. to midnight on Saturday; noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. Admission is $5 for adults, and free for kids 12 and younger.
