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!
Mud Day Info
When: Friday, June 4, 2021
Time: 10-11 a.m. or 12-1 p.m.
Where: Freedom Park, 850 W Stop 18 Rd., Greenwood
Ages: 2 to 10
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.
The Greenwood Fire Department will be on hand to provide the water to make lots of mud! This event is free, but monetary donations are welcomed to benefit the Parks Foundation.
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.
