It was a marshmallow monsoon at Catalpa Oaks County Park in Southfield. Thousands of puffy sweet treats rained down from the sky and hundreds of kids turned into marshmallow hunters in a sugary scramble.

This epic event, the Great Marshmallow Drop, saw a helicopter soaring overhead, overflowing with a fluffy white treasure trove. As the chopper approached, cheers erupted from the crowd of excited kids. 

Then, with a mighty whoosh, the marshmallows blanketed the ground in a cloud of pure delight.

According to AP News, each marshmallow was a ticket to a prize bonanza. Sweets, colouring books, and even a water park pass awaited the marshmallow masters who collected the most.

Melissa Nawrocki, the mastermind behind this sugary spectacle, promised a mountain of marshmallows – a whopping 15,000 to be exact.

The helicopter made four sugary passes, showering marshmallows on different age groups, making sure every kid got a chance to snag a piece of the fluffy fun. It was a day filled with laughter, cheers, and a whole lot of marshmallow mania.
