    Happy Cinco de Mayo!

    Portland's 30th Annual Cinco de Mayo Festival
    Happy Cinco de Mayo! Ten minutes to the south of GiftTree’s headquarters is the nation’s best Cinco de Mayo celebration. 152 years ago, Mexicans successfully fended off an invasion by France’s Napoleon III. 30 years ago, Portland, Oregon became the sister city of Guadalajara, Mexico. So we celebrate each year with not only tacos, guacamole, and margaritas, but with mariachi bands, authentic handmade products from Mexico, and, today a naturalization ceremony for the region’s newest citizens.

    It’s a happy time. See the full story here and enjoy the celebrations.
