GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Thursday marks Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for fifth of May), a holiday celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla.
The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.
That being said, it is also a cheap excuse to fire up some mariachi music, and let traffic guy Pete Busch dance. Exhibiting a style that conjures up images of a cross between Saturday Night Fever-era John Travolta and the gopher from Caddyshack, Pete fired up KARE 11's Sunrise audience with some classic middle-aged moves.
You just can't make this stuff up.
