There was no bull about it as the Cinco De Mayo celebration at 2069 Bruckner Blvd. had real bulls on hand to celebrate the event. There were games, food, entertainment, a mechanical, and even real bulls on hand. Hundreds of people celebrated Cinco de Mayo as they came dressed for the occasion with their cowboy or cowgirl attire on. Below are a few photos of the event.
