AQUAFEST is here!!!!

Product Font Poster Advertising Logo

NMMA's Annual summer festival begins to unfold this evening with the Nautical Nibble Tastfest, along with Thursday evening's Car Cruise Nite and into Friday's and Saturday's Casino Nights.

Unfortunately, the Great Cardboard Boat Regatta had to be canceled.
The Macomb County Health Department advised the high Ecoli Count made it unsafe for the Regatta to continue at the Blossom Heath Waterfront Beach.

The disappointment of canceling this extremely popular annual event is enormous to long-time coordinator Dan Hall, Colony Marine, the largest number of participants ever, the thousands of spectators and NMMA!

Because of the Regatta's popularity, we learned Friday that Dan Zacharek, Producer for channel 7, wanted to coordinate a series of live shoots of the event for the morning show. What can I say, we must , move on! We must look at the positive picture!
