By Hadas Kuznits

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – March of the Sombreros takes place tonight on South Street. What is it?

March of the Sombreros is a Cinco de Mayo event on South Street — mainly a drinking event.

“It is kind of fun. You know, you want to celebrate the Mexican heritage and doing this while drinking Corona and seeing a couple hundred people while wearing a sombrero, it definitely makes for a fun evening.”

That’s Ray Sheehan with He says folks will be out and about between 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. and you won’t miss them.

“Everyone gets a sombrero and we also do some face painting and it’s a really good time.”

Sheehan says the March of the Sombreros is similar to another even that takes place in the winter.

“The running of the Santas, they’re good friends of ours and this event is somewhat similar to that.”
