We have an event that will not delete. When trying to delete, the system gives:

"This event cannot be deleted because there are participant records linked to it. If you want to delete this event, you must first find the participants linked to this event and delete them. You can use use CiviEvent >> Find Participants page ."

There are no participants registered for this event. This happens every so often.

Perhaps you have is_test participants?

Events -> Find Participants Participant is a test? Hit the Yes radio button Search

If you have any - then select the participants you found - and then in the actions: delete participants.
