Port Huron — Police say a spectator at the Rotary International Day Parade in Port Huron was injured when a float ran over her foot.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports the parade was interrupted around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in downtown after she was injured.

Police Sgt. Jason Barna says the woman was reaching for beads when she got too close to one of the floats. He says her injuries weren’t serious.

No other problems were reported. Big crowds turned out for the annual event, which is part of “Boat Week” in Port Huron. The parade — with the theme “At the Movies” — took place ahead of this weekend’s sailboat race from Port Huron to Mackinac Island.
