The Jobbie Nooner is an event that began in the 1980s. Auto workers who called themselves "jobbies", would pick a Friday and take off work at noon to party at Gull Island (Lake St. Clair, Michigan) for the day. The event was originally timed to coincide with the late Lee Wagner's birthday, but eventually grew to become a bigger celebration. The party now occurs twice a year.
The event keeps growing and in 2010 it attracted 10,000 people.
