The enthusiasm with which Americans embrace Cinco de Mayo must puzzle Mexico. It’s a minor holiday there. It’s the equivalent of Mexicans getting together every Groundhog Day for Michelob and baked potatoes.

Atlanta’s biggest Cinco de Mayo celebration was Fiesta Atlanta in Centennial Olympic Park — held on, um, May 6 and featuring food, art, mariachi music and a performance by Miami-based Mexican singer Maria Lourdes.

Lourdes looks like a stripper, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately, she also sings like one.
