CLAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -

Thousands of boaters on Friday made their journey to a small island on Lake St. Clair for the yearly, adults only summer celebration known as Jobbie Nooner.

The party takes place at Gull Island in the Muscamoot Bay area of Lake St. Clair near Harsens Island and has developed a reputation for its scantily clad crowd and excessive drinking.

SkyFOX will fly over the island around noon. Check back for live coverage. Until then, scroll through a photo gallery from last year's party.

The New Baltimore Voice newspaper reports Jobbie Nooner started in the 80s by autoworkers who took a skip day at noon and headed out to the lake to party.

It typically attracts up to 5,000 boaters.

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
