ORONO — The University of Maine says a DayGlow event billed as the “world’s largest paint party” probably won’t be invited back to campus after 16 attendees were taken away in ambulances.

Dean of Students Robert Dana says the event featuring music, light displays and lots of DayGlow paint last week at UMaine’s Field House was too boisterous. And he didn’t like the number of ambulance transports for excessive drinking, asthma attacks and paint in eyes.

Myles Block, chief of the UMaine Volunteer Ambulance Corp, told the Bangor Daily News that emergency workers did their homework and were prepared.

In December, a Dayglow concert at Lehigh University was classified as a “mass casualty event” with 35 attendees being shuttled to area hospitals.
