Guess what? It's street-fair season! That means the weather must be getting warmer, right? Well, the organizers of Little Village's fourth annual Cinco de Mayo Festival (26th and Kostner) promise greatness for their fest (5/3-5/5), so you won't notice if it's cold and rainy. Expect live music, food, and crafts. Also, a history lesson: Cinco de Mayo celebrates not independence but Mexico's victory over France in the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
