Mud Day in Greenwood

The satisfying, sensory squish of mud between your hands is a childhood favorite. Now imagine plopping your whole body into a big, messy mud pile. Greenwood Parks and Recreation is encouraging visitors to ignore the “don’t play in the mud” rule on Friday, June 4 with their annual event, Mud Day!

What to Expect at Mud Day

This messy event will include a giant mud pit and lots of free and muddy activities, including mud volleyball, tug-of-war, live entertainment and more.

Advice for a Successful Mud Day

  • Expect to get messy! Very messy. This is Mud Day, after all! Be prepared for non-stop, sloppy fun. 
  • Wear mud-appropriate clothing. Swim suits and old shirts and shorts work best for Mud Day. Wear anything that you don’t mind getting mucky! Shoes are not recommended when playing in the mud pit (unless they are super secure!), because they have been known to get lost. Bare feet are best!
  • Bring things to get clean. The park will provide rinse stations to clean off all of the mud. But you will need to bring your own towels to dry off. It’s also a good idea to bring wet napkins, in case you need to clean off little hands in a hurry.
