If you've seen the last season of Arrested Development — or actually been to Mexico — you'll know that Cinco de Mayo is  celebration like no other. Think spicy food, energetic dancing, street stalls and more mariachi bands than you can tip your sombrero to. All that comes to the Cinco de Mayo Mexican Festival, which takes over Riverlife this Sunday. Yep, it's just going to be one of those fast-paced, high-octane events that will have your eyes darting between bands, dancers, chillis and tacos till you collapse.

A bit of history on the day: originally Cinco de Mayo commemorated the Mexican battle of Puebla where Mexico defeated the French. Now, the fifth of May marks a celebration of Mexican culture, cuisine, cocktails and music. That means you've finally got a chance to bust out that dusty sombrero and show off your attempt at salsa.

The Cinco de Mayo Mexican Festival will take place Sunday, May 6 from 1pm till late. Tickets are available for $17.50 including food, or $35 including food and two drinks.
