Thursday, May 7, 2015
5–9 p.m.

Join the Hippo and 40+ eateries for the fifth annual Hippo de Mayo Taco Challenge. Each restaurant will be creating its own taco—and these aren't all your typical tacos. How does a Transylvanian taco sound? And you get to vote for your favorites.

$2,000 will go to charity All tacos $2

Manchester, New Hampshire, will be home to the world's largest—and perhaps only—taco tour Thursday, May 7, 2015 from 5 to 9 p.m. This Cinco de Mayo celebration will feature more than 40 different kinds of tacos all sold for $2 each at restaurants throughout Manchester's downtown area.

Taco tourists will navigate their way through the Manchester's downtown tasting a variety of reinventions of the taco. Restaurants are planning interesting takes on the taco—from traditional Mexican-style tacos to a Transylvanian dessert taco and a Greek taco made with flat bread and tzatziki. The taco is the perfect canvas for Manchester's creative eateries to display their culinary skills.

Taco tourists will be able to vote for their favorite take on the taco through The most popular taco will win a local charity $1,000 (another $1,000 will be awarded to the judge's favorite taco). Maps will be available online and in the Hippo. Keep in mind, there are no tickets to purchase. Just head to downtown Manchester on May 7 with money for tacos and room in your stomach. Rain or shine!

If taco tourists still have room after tasting all those tacos, participating restaurants also will feature special Cinco de Mayo menus that night. Updated information will be found on our website or on our Facebook page.
