Pictures from Cinco de Mayo at Dartmouth College

In commemoration of the Mexican victory in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla over invading French forces, popularly known as Cinco de Mayo (or Fifth of May), the Ballet Folklórico de Dartmouth (BFD) held a showcase of traditional Mexican dances at ’53 Commons. The group performed nine dances as students dined on Mexican dishes such as chicken mole and chiles rellenos.
