Digital Daily: Kids celebrate 'Mud Day' in Michigan

Updated: July 09, 2019 04:10 PM

It's the one day a year where parents won't get mad at their kids for rolling around in the mud.

Tuesday was the 32nd Annual Mud Day at Nankin Mills Park in Westland, Michigan.


Families stood by and anxiously waited for the dirt oval to turn into a sloppy mud pit. 

Kids, 12 and under, rolled around in the mess and played games like mud limbo in the giant pit.

When the pit closes, the muddiest boy and girl are crowned King and Queen Mud.

For the parents worried about the mess, the Westland Fire department put their giant water hoses to good use by rigging a giant shower to rinse the mud off the kids before sending them home.
