Residents celebrate Cinco de Mayo


BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) — Plenty of Valley residents included an authentic Mexican meal as part of their Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

The folks at Los Gallos in Boardman say May 5 is their busiest day of the year. A lot of people were waiting for tables at the Boardman and downtown Youngstown locations.

There were also sings saying Los Gallos will no longer accept $50 or $100 bills.

The staff said it’s a proactive precaution, after recent news of counterfeit bills circulating around town.

“Safety. It’s perfect, we run a lot of cash. So it’s good to don’t have the fake ones,” said Los Gallos employee Ciprian Toropal.

Bad weather forced the downtown Los Gallos to cancel its planned live music entertainment for the evening.

Monday night wrapped up a four-day Cinco de Mayo street festival outside Los Gallos downtown.
