PERTH AMBOY–In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, the Perth Amboy Business Improvement District (BID) is sponsoring a two-part, fun-filled day of activities on Thursday, May 5.
Using the theme of “Mariachi Day by the Bay,” a number of area restaurants will offer special menu pricing and there will be a free program featuring food, music and dancing at Fink Park.
“This is a fantastic way for anyone to take part in a festive event and sample fine food from local Perth Amboy restaurants,” said Roxana Troche, Urban Enterprise Zone/BID Coordinator. “People can literally loop around the town and try a little bit of everything while being serenaded and learning a new dance step.”
The five Mexican restaurants participating in the event will offer special menu prices. For additional information about the menus and pricing, call the individual restaurants. They are:

There will be finger-size Mexican food for sale, live entertainment with a mariachi band and dance demonstrations and lessons.
