    Flat Rock cancels Riverfest due to gasoline spill

    Flat Rock — The Flat Rock Riverfest, a two-day festival planned for Friday and Saturday, is canceled due to last week’s gasoline spill and the state of emergency, officials said. 

    The festival was announced in June. It would have been held at Huroc Park and offered pony rides, a petting zoo, a beer tent and a fire department obstacle course, among other attractions.

    The cancellation means the fallout of the chemical spill will stretch to a second week, at least.

    On Aug. 30, odd, “gasoline-like” odors were reported to the city, Mayor Mark Hammond said.

    By Friday night Ford admitted that its Flat Rock Assembly Plant was the “likely source” of the leak.
