May FU N FACTS

Anestimated

38.2 miles

National Bike Month is this May, and it is the perfect time to get out on your bike and ride! Here in Pinellas County, we are blessed with one of the best bike trails in the state. The Fred E. Marquis Pinellas Trail covers over 38 miles and stretches from Tarpon Springs in the north to St. Petersburg in the south. This May, pull out your bike and join the over 90,000 people that use and enjoy the Pinellas Trail each month.

mothers live in the U.S. according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and when you think of all the work that all these mothers do in raising their children, it is no wonder Mothers need to be celebrated! It was 104 years ago that President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. This year Mother’s Day falls on the 13th of May, so whether you celebrate with gifts, visits, flowers, or a simple phone call, make sure you take time out to say “thank you” to the moms you know, but especially to your own mom!

Cinco de Mayo,

85.4million

Spanish for “Fifth of May”, marks the anniversary of a victorious Mexican battle over a much larger French Army that took place on May 5, 1862 in Puebla, Mexico. Today Cinco de Mayo has become a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and for the over 30 million U.S. residents of Mexican origin, it is a joyous holiday celebrated with food, parades, and a lot of fun.

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May and commemorates U.S. men and women who have died while in military service to our country. Every Memorial Day at sunrise, the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of America quietly pay tribute to those who have served our country bravely by placing an American flag at the graves of our fallen veterans.
