Altoona students make piñatas for Cinco de Mayo

By  | 

ALTOONA, Wis. (WEAU) -- Students at an area high school are celebrating Cinco de Mayo in a creative way.

Altoona High School Spanish students made piñatas the Mexican holiday.

Students spent several weeks working in groups or individually to create the projects for their annual piñata contest.

One student says they learned the true meaning of the piñatas in Mexican culture.

"It really gives us first-hand experience of the traditional work they put into it, and the amount of time they put into it. We also learned about the meaning of them and how it represents the history of Mexico,” said Josefina Benitez, senior.

The students made around 70 piñatas.
