The Dragon boats for the races are adorned with large colorful flags and flowers. They race in the river to the beat of a drum, providing the viewers with an exciting and colorful sight. Westerners call the competition ‘Dragon Boat Races’ because of the way the boats look. Strongly resembling Chinese dragons, their long narrow bodies are decorated with a dragon’s head and tail. The average boat length is about 20–35 meters. Each boat can carry from 20 to 60 paddlers, a drummer and a steerer. Tradition says the winning team will receive good fortune the following year.

Gift Baskets for Cinco de Mayo with Mexican Flair

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration full of food, friends, family, and fun! It is often mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day. In fact, it commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  Because of this common confusion, the holiday has evolved into a celebration of all things Mexican.

In Mexico there are parades, costumes, music, dances, and food everywhere to celebrate the day. Cinco de Mayo serves as a day to honor Mexico’s fallen heroes, and celebrate life.  In the US, Canada, and elsewhere, Cinco de Mayo is a day for celebrating life and all things Mexican.

So if you’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo, finding inspiration from Mexico’s vast culture is a must. Sending a gift basket with all they need to party is the way to include friends and family in your celebration even when they’re far away.
