WESTLAND- Wayne County Parks is set to transform the Hines Park-Nankin Mills Area, located at 33175 Ann Arbor Trail, into a 75’ x 150’ giant mud pit on Tuesday, July 12 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Children ages 12 and younger will have the opportunity to get down and dirty at one of the messiest playgrounds Southeast Michigan has ever seen!
“Mud Day brings me so much joy because I love to see kids having fun, playing in the mud. The best part of Mud Day is seeing who gets crowned King and Queen of the mud!” said Director, Beverly J. Watts. “This is a free event and I encourage families to come out and get messy with us.”
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 2016 King and Queen will be crowned after the games are over.
The Western Wayne Hazemat Team will be on site to help rinse the kids off at the end of the event. Parents are encouraged to bring towels. Plastic bags will be provided to ensure that all dirty clothes are properly contained for the trip home.
Sponsors for Mud Day include: ITC Holdings, Fox 2, Community Alliance Credit Union, Metro Charter Academy, Friends of Wayne County Parks, Western Wayne Hazmat Team and Team Schostak Family Restaurant.
