Celebrate Cinco de Mayo the Taco Way

The World's Largest Taco Tour is happening in Downtown Manchester on Thursday, May 4, 2017 from 4-9 p.m. This tasty 7th annual event, Hippo de Mayo Taco Challenge, is your chance to experience the creativity and uniqueness that 50 downtown Manchester eateries have to offer.

For the most part, these aren't your standard cheese, tomato and beef tacos though; restaurants are vying for people and judges' choice so there tends to be some pretty creative combinations like dessert tacos with chocolate, Korean tacos with kimchi, and Greek tacos with tzatziki sauce and French fries. If you're curious about this year's concoctions, you can see the full taco list here.

Tacos will be sold at $2 each until they run out and this is not a ticket event – just show up at the restaurant ready to eat and have some fun! Taco tourists will be able to vote for their favorite take on the taco and the two winning restaurants will each win $1,000 for their charity of choice.
