About the Cinco de Mayo Parade
The Cinco De Mayo celebration is more than just a parade. The parade and fiesta signify the finishing touch of the Corona Cinco de Mayo Scholarship Committee's efforts to award scholarships. In 2018, with the community’s assistance, the scholarship organization was very fortunate to award $10,000 in scholarships to seniors of the Corona-Norco Unified School District. Since 1994, the scholarship organization has awarded over $260,000 in scholarship funds. “Muchas gracias” to all the volunteers who dedicate their personal time to this annual celebration and to the sponsors for their continual support.
