Mud Day in Michigan

The annual day sponsored by the Wayne County Parks takes place in a 75 foot by 150 foot giant mud pit that gives children the opportunity to get down and dirty at one of the messiest playgrounds Southeast Michigan has ever seen.

Thousands of children, who will be separated into two age groups: ages 4 and younger and ages 5-12, will charge into the mud to participate in fun filled activities, such as mud limbo and wheelbarrow races. The 2017 King and Queen were crowned after the games were over. (AP)
