A proposed two-day cannabis and music festival in Hazel Park in June provokes opposition from residents and officials concerned about hosting thousands of people. About 4,200 are expected at Spark in the Park.

“I don’t think anyone is philosophically opposed to a cannabis event,” City Manager Ed Klobucher tells The Oakland Press. “I think the biggest issue is the size.”

"The City Council is concerned about whether we can accommodate a festival of that size. There’s also the question of noise and parking, and its impact on residents who live in the area … this is not a done deal at this point.”
