Rain Doesn't Put Damper on Cinco de Mayo Celebrations in Old Town

The chance of rain arrived during one of Old Town’s busiest time of the year--Cinco de Mayo.

Despite the possibility of a weekend storm isn't going going to stop the celebrations, which will feature dancers, live music, food, drinks and much more.

But with rain and thunder in the forecast, vendors just weren’t taking any chances.

NBC 7 caught some setting up shop, preparing ahead and building up tents in case the rain hits.

This year the main stage is also covered to protect live music bands and dancers from the bad weather.

Meanwhile festival goers came out Friday to avoid the possible rain on the weekend.

“If it rains I plan to stay in, I just hate the rain," one person told NBC 7.

San Diegans are often spoiled with our great weather, but over the next few days, the weather will be gloomy and possibly wet due to an unusual weather pattern taking shape.

But rain or shine, Old Town will be full of Cinco de Mayo festivities.

NBC 7 and Telemundo 20 will also be joining the celebration.

Cinco de Mayo marks Mexico's defeat of the French Army in 1862, better known as the Battle of Puebla.
