Long Island town seeks to ban Silly String

LONG ISLAND Tuesday, the Huntington Town Council is set to vote on whether to ban Silly String during parades and other public events.

The Silly String showdown comes just days before the town's St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday.

Town officials say the string-in-a-can mars the finish on fire trucks.

Manufacturer Just for Kicks says it's not familiar with the fire truck claim, but notes the label includes cleaning instructions.
