Los Angeles isn't known as the Entertainment Capital of the World for nothing.

This is a town that doesn’t skimp on attractions or celebrations for both the resident and the visitor, and it’s also one of America’s great hubs for Mexican culture. So, one should know that the City of Angels goes all out for Cinco de Mayo, and for the person looking to celebrate, here’s the best concerts and parties that one can attend in L.A. and its environs.
