Ocean Beach Council Wants to End Annual Marshmallow Fight

NBC 7 San Diego

Ocean Beach leaders want to see an end to the California city's annual July 4th marshmallow fight.

A resolution was passed at a town council meeting Wednesday night.

Legally, the town council does not have the authority to cancel the fight, but they hope the resolution will encourage people to stop supporting the event.

On July 5, business owners and volunteers helped the city clean up an estimated 2,300 pounds of trash left on the beach after this year's fight.

Soon after, some neighbors and business owners say the event has gotten out of hand and needs to stop.

In previous years, most of the sticky mess generated by the annual event was limited to the beach.

But, as more people continue to participate, the Marshmallow Fight has spilled out onto the streets and sidewalks.
