SHOW ME ST. LOUIS- Cinco de Mayo comes early in St. Louis. Saturday is the day to eat your way down Cherokee Street.

"Lots of food and entertainment," said Anne McCullough, festival organizer.

That's the best way to describe Saturday on Cherokee Street.

"It happens at Nebraska and then goes all the way down to Ohio," explained McCullough.

The cities largest Cinco de Mayo party surrounds the closest thing to Mexico you'll find in St. Louis.

"It's really authentic, we have the largest population of Hispanic owned and operated family run businesses," said McCullough.

20 businesses have opened on Cherokee Street in the last year and almost all of them are part of the Cinco de Mayo festival.

You can join in the party on Cherokee between Nebraska and Ohio Saturday, May 3 11am-9pm.
