Children in Trenton will keep their eyes skyward Friday morning in anticipation of the helicopter unleashing thousands of marshmallows on Elizabeth Park. The 29th Annual Great Marshmallow Drop will begin at 9 a.m. Friday, and children in three age groups will have a chance to scramble for fallen marshmallows, redeemable for a special prize. Sponsored by Wayne County Parks, the event has become a local favorite with hundreds of children scrambling across the park.
