Sunday Special – Boryeong Mud Festival, South Korea

I thought it fun today to feature a festival. I did a quick search and low and behold I found a mud festival. Playing in mud would be so much fun! And probably great for the skin. Ends up that the Boryeong Mud Festival was, in fact, started by its use in cosmetics. Instead of traditional advertising to promote products with mud from the Boryeong Mud Flats the festival was created in 1998 to have people “test” the mud found in the products. For two weeks every July mud is transported from the flats to Daecheon Beach (in the city of Boryeong) and there the “Mud Experience Land” is created. At this festival will find a mud prison, a mud pool, mud skiing and a mud slide. Add music, vendors and closing fireworks and you have a muddy delight of a festival. It sounds fun! In fact it draws both locals and travellers to the number of over 2 million in 2007. Let’s get dirty!!!
