573 Solar Mud Festival

Let’s Keep it Clean -Mud Rules

Welcome to the first annual “Let’s Keep it Clean” 573 Mud Festival! The goal of the 573 Mud Festival is to encourage support of recycling and keeping the area clean and free from litter. The 573 Mud Festival is a fun-filled muddy obstacle courses filled with slippery, gooey mud. At last, you can have some good clean dirty fun. Age groups for the mud obstacle courses are: 1-6 and 7 to 99. For kids 6 and younger, we have a mini mud course, and for the tiny tots, puddle pools. Children are grouped in ages for a race through the course. In addition to the mud courses, there will be additional fun theme areas for kids to explore, including mud pits and a contest for the muddiest child.

Everyone wins!  We will be awarding ribbons to everyone who participates in the mud obstacle race. Additional prizes will be given for other mud contests.

We’ll have games and activities to support recycling. We’ll promote awareness of the simple things children and adults can do to keep our area clean. 

• We’ll have three mud pits just to play in – one for the 6 and younger group, one for 7
to 12-year-olds, and one for ages 13 and above.

• Two water slides will be available – exciting, fast-action muddy water slides.

• Mud art contest – we will have professional artists painting with mud on canvas. 

• Mud pie contest – prizes for the dirtiest mud pie. 

• Mud fashion show – kids will strut their muddy selves on the mud walk. 

• Mud volleyball for those 16 and older.
