No Christmas-in-July on Put-in-Bay next year

Put-in-Bay - The Lake Erie Island that's a destination for fun-loving folks in the summertime is ending a regular event because some decided to get out of hand.

Christmas in July will not take place on South Bass Island in 2019.

The Put-in-Bay Visitors and Convention Bureau says that around 35000 people showed up to the island for the event last year, and of those, more than 125 dealt with law enforcement in some capacity.

Organizers say they employed 100 police officers for last year's Christmas in July, and it wasn't enough to handle the crowds.
