HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Safety and other concerns by public safety officials appear to have forced promotors to cancel an annual concert along Lake St. Clair.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports (https://bit.ly/1Y8mNIB ) Saturday that possible fights, intoxicated boaters falling into the water and trouble by police trying to reach anyone calling for help are among the reasons that the 2016 AquaPalooza won’t be held at Belle Maer Harbor.

The newspaper reports that last year’s event drew about 6,000 boats and 40,000 people to the site in Harrison Township, northeast of Detroit.

Tonic production company chief executive Eric Flynn says the free, 2-day “event had gotten too big for Belle Maer Harbor.”

Flynn says plans are underway to resume the event next year at a new location.
