In the United States Cinco de Mayo is observed by many Americans regardless of ethnic origins, particularly along the border states where there is a large hispanic population. The largest of these celebrations are found in the larger cities such as Denver, Colorado; Los Angeles, California; San Diego, California; Dallas, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; Houston, Texas; and Phoenix, Arizona. Although it is no more an officially recognized holiday than St. Patrick's Day in the United States, many cities display Cinco de Mayo banners while school districts hold special events to educate students about its historical significance, especially in the Spanish language classes. Commercial interests in the United States have capitalized on the celebration with advertising for products and services with an emphasis on foods, beverages, and music. To balance that, however, many multi-ethnic communities hold special events and celebrations which highlight the Mexican-hispanic culture, especially in its music and regional dancing.
