SAN DIEGO, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- City officials in San Diego said the annual July 4 marshmallow fight will no longer be allowed in the Ocean Beach neighborhood.

The neighborhood's town council passed a resolution Wednesday requesting San Diego police prevent the annual event by enforcing laws against littering and use of harmful objects, KSWB-TV, San Diego, reported Thursday.

Officials are also asking local businesses not to promote the event by selling marshmallows, marshmallow-launching devices and paraphernalia.
