SPOKANE, Wash. — A Mexican cultural exhibit is coming to the Riverfront Spring Market for Cinco de Mayo this week.

The Riverfront Spring Market runs every Wednesday from 3–7 p.m., and this week, that falls right on Cinco de Mayo. To celebrate the occasion, Riverfront Park and the Hispanic Business and Professional Association (HBPA) of Spokane put the exhibit together.

The exhibit will share the history, facts and myths of Cinco de Mayo, feature an art gallery and cultural items like traditional clothing.

Coinciding with the event, the HBPA notes May 5 is also National Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) Awareness Day. The exhibit will also feature education about MMIW, and the Pavilion will light up red at 7 p.m. in honor of indigenous women.

The cultural exhibit will be held on the Pavilion’s second floor from 3–7 p.m.
