Plant Riverside District will host a celebration for Cinco de Mayo starting at 5:30 p.m. May 5 at Montgomery Park in front of the Savannah Tequila Company.
The event will be the first time Plant Riverside has been able to host such an event, and will feature live music performances by a house mariachi band and a 10-piece Afro-Cuban salsa orchestra from Jacksonville, Florida, called LPT.

“We’re going to celebrate in a fun, unique and exciting way,” said Tyler Gray, event organizer and Entertainment & Activities Director at JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District.

The event is free and open to the public, but Plant Riverside does encourage wearing masks and social distancing at all of their events.

Gray said there will be piñatas everywhere and fun, exciting colors decorating the park at this family-friendly event.

In addition to the region’s most extensive selection of premium tequilas, mezcals and agave spirits served at the Savannah Tequila Company, the event will feature Cinco de Mayo specialty cocktails in addition to an extensive selection of handcrafted margaritas, sangrias, frozen cocktails, domestic and Mexican beers, wine and Jarritos fruit sodas.

The House Mariachi Band will play from 5:30-7 p.m. and the LPT live concert will run from 7-10 p.m.

Before drinking fiesta-style libations and indulging in tacos and Mexican food aplenty, however, the new downtown rooftop lounge will be throwing a party for everything from Chewbacca to Darth Vader fans in honor of Star Wars Day, or “May the 4th Be With You.”

“We’re creating a galactic experience in our Electric Moon Rooftop Lounge with a live DJ,” Gray said. “It’s going to kind of like coming into a spaceship with every feel that you can have to bring that Star Wars aspect.”

The DJ is going to be dressed up as a main character, which Gray couldn’t reveal.

“Everybody will be dressed up and we encourage people to dress up, as well,” Gray said.

There will be specialty cocktails catered to the event, fog geysers and hologram machines.

“It’ll just be a great time on May the Fourth be with You for all those Star Wars fans,” Gray said. “It’d be a great way to start a Tuesday night as you come in to see a fun, exciting thing.”

The event begins at 7 p.m. and will go to 11 p.m. at Plant Riverside District’s Electric Moon Skytop Lounge and The Moon Deck. There will be $10 cover charge at the door.
