Feliz Cinco de Mayo

calcMay 05, 2017

The OATI Microgrid Technology Center will be lit up with red, white, and green to symbolize the Mexican flag in observation of Cinco de Mayo. Today is often mistaken for the Mexican Independence Day, el Grito de Dolores, which is celebrated annually on September 16. On May 05, 1862, the Mexican Army defeated the French against all odds at the Battle of Puebla. The battle helped cement a sense of national unity and patriotism for the Mexican people that is still appreciated today.
