ATLANTA (AP) - A massive Cinco de Mayo celebration has been
canceled after a case of swine flu was discovered in Georgia.

Organizers say the celebration at Plaza Fiesta in northeast
Atlanta scheduled for Sunday was postponed "indefinitely as a
precautionary step." The celebration drew about 35,000 people last
year.

Other celebrations are still on schedule. A smaller celebration
at Centennial Olympic Park is still moving forward. That party drew
about 25,000 people last year.

State officials confirmed this week that a Kentucky woman in
LaGrange to attend a wedding had contracted swine flu.
