Mayfest Cancelled

Looks like Ft. Worth got the Panic!

The concerns over the spread of swine flu have led to the cancellation of Mayfest and all other major outdoor events in Fort Worth this weekend, according to a note sent out to police officers and administrators by Fort Worth Police Chief Jeff Halstead.

Mayfest officials have called a news conference for about 2 p.m. today, when they are expected to announce that the annual festival on the Trinity River will be canceled because of concerns of the swine flu.

Law enforcement officials working at the event, which was scheduled to open at 3:30 this afternoon, were overheard saying that the Centers for Disease Control told Mayfest to “shut down.”
