LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The City of Louisville is gearing up for Cinco De Mayo.

Members of the Magnificent Seven, a coalition of Hispanic and Latino leaders, joined Mayor Greg Fischer to announce plans for the Sunday after Derby.

An event called Cinco at Fourth Street Live! will be held to help the community learn about other cultures and bring diverse non-profit groups together to raise money for the Wesley House.

Fischer explained, "Not only are we going to have a great Festival, we're helping a great cause and that's the Wesley House. The Wesley House has done so much for the community in terms of pulling internationals together, teaching English as a second language, giving life skills to refugees, immigrants that are coming into the community."
