The City of Lewisville, after consulting with local and state health officials, has decided to cancel its three May 2 events in Old Town as a result of the ongoing response to the spread of the H1N1 virus (Swine Flu). Even though there have been no confirmed cases of the virus in Lewisville, both the Denton County Health Department and the city's Public Health Officer, Dr. Stu Coffman, recommended cancelling the event as a precaution. The three events -- Cinco de Mayo, Farmers Market Kickoff and Crime Watch Safety Fair -- will not be rescheduled. The Old Town Farmers Market will open its season next Saturday, May 9, at its regular time and place.
