Summer is the season of festivals. MudFest last weekend is one of our favorites! MudFest takes family fun to the next level. There are varying degrees of muddy for participants to enjoy. You ease into things with some Mud Art. There is mud with a clay-like consistency perfect for making mud sculptures and playing with mud you can shape. For those willing to get a bit more into it there is Mud Painting areas where plexiglass and wood ‘canvases’ can be painted, squeegeed clean, and painted again. Our littles were equally enthralled by the Mud Painting and the Mud Kitchen! The Mud Kitchen turns making Mud Pies into a professional gig. There are several play kitchens set up with ovens and baking equipment to make mud everything! We were there for an hour, easily and we weren’t the only ones who loved it!
For the mud enthusiasts or older kids, there are two large areas where you get covered in mud! There are varying configurations of Mud Holes & Mud Slides. My little ones were not too sure about the big Mud Hole, but then the water hoses were turned on they couldn’t get out fast enough. I do not recommend taking anyone who is not ready to swim in mud and can not withstand water from fire hoses into the big Mud Pool! The smaller kiddie pools and slides that are set up are a much better fit. To be fair, some of the Adventure littles and all of the Adventure Moms LOVED the Mud Pool! As always, it’s about tailoring the Adventure to meet the needs of your Adventure Buddies!
There are washing stations conveniently located around the festival. By the entrance/exit there were several showers, including dinosaur and unicorn showers. MudFest is more than a muddy field with food vendors and music. Spend the day in a Mud Bath with your favorite people! MudFest is a great way to Celebrate International Mud Day, connect and celebrate nature while you get supper muddy!
