SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Cinco de Mayo normally sees San Diegans visiting local eateries for Mexican cuisine.

This year, however, the pandemic has forced many events to go virtual. May 5 is no exception.

Old Town San Diego will host their Virtual Fiesta Old Town Cinco de Mayo online on Tuesday, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The celebration will be streamed on Facebook, YouTube, and Old Town's website.


To get locals into the celebration, Old Town restaurants Cafe Coyote, Rockin' Baja Lobster, and Tahona Bar will be selling Cinco de Mayo meal packages for pick-up or delivery, including food and drinks. See their menus here.

The online will also host live Mariachi and Salsa dance performances, food- and drink-making demonstrations with chefs and mixologists, crafts, and more.
