Every year, millions of people celebrate Cinco de Mayo by drinking and partying, but who can tell me why people celebrate this commemorative Mexican holiday? What is the meaning behind it? Cinco de Mayo is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over the French Empire at the Battle of the Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragonza. Now that we’ve had our little history lesson, how about we grab a nice margarita or five and enjoy them with some traditional Mexican cuisine!

Let’s Party!

Come Cinco de Mayo, block and house parties are a dime a dozen. Tequila and is generally the giggle water of choice and good tacos and taquitos are being taken to chow town.  People are dancing to good mariachi music and people are genuinely having a good time.

As with any good celebration, preparations need to be made. Food, music, and atmosphere are some of the first things on people’s mind when planning any party or celebration, but the restroom situation is usually the last. We get it. Porta potties don’t exactly spell fiesta, but for a party holiday like Cinco de Mayo, it’s rather important if you want to keep the foot traffic through your home to a minimum. Portable toilets are also an excellent consideration for those who are environmentally conscious. Flush after flush wastes hundreds of gallons of water during the party. We all know that alcohol makes people flock to the restroom. A porta potty uses only a few gallons of water for its entire “service cycle”.

What To Order?

Pot-O-Gold has two great portable toilet rental options for occasions like this: our standard porta potty and our special event porta potty. For one-day or weekend celebrations like Cinco de Mayo, I would highly suggest our special event portable toilet. You will save some money and treat your guests to some upgraded amenities like a coat and purse hook, a vanity mirror, and corner mounted shelving. No delivery fee. No fuel sur charge. As for your cost, it could be from $85 – $125 depending on your area. When you are done with your unit, just call for a pick up and it will be out of your way in no time.
