This might not be your traditional Cinco de Mayo celebration, but it’s definitely a good time! The Oasis is Grand Prairie’s floating restaurant on Joe Pool Lake and all weekend they have live music in the bar and patio. This is the perfect place to watch the sunset, grab you a margarita and celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
