PhillyEl Carnaval de Puebla, a major Cinco De Mayo celebration in Philadelphia, has been canceled following recent federal immigration crackdowns, organizers said.

Edgar Ramirez told a local NBC affiliate that as many as 15,000 people gather for the annual parade through South Philadelphia, marking the city’s largest Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Ramirez told NBC the decision was “sad but responsible” amid reports of more immigration enforcement arrests on the part of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

    Cinco de Mayo is a fun festival and best celebrated in Mexico – the USA was fighting the Civil War when the Mexican Army defeated the French forces on the 5th of May, 1862. Have a taco and a cervesa and enjoy
