Wayne County Parks is set to transform the Hines Park-Nankin Mills Area into a giant 75' x 150' mud pit playground on Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Children, ages 12 and younger, will have the opportunity to get down and dirty. This year marks the 25th Anniversary celebration of Mud Day; many surprises are in store!
SLIDESHOW: Mud Day 2011- Wayne County
Wayne County Parks is partnering with Radio Disney AM 910 for a live show from 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. At 11:45 a.m. thousands of kids will charge into the mud. Youngsters will be separated into age categories for events such as, "Mud Limbo" and wheel barrow races. Also, the King and Queen of Mud will be crowned.
Children should wear old clothes and shoes and bring a clean change of clothes. There are no showers on-site, however a clean up area is available with hoses to aid in rinsing off the mud. Parents are also advised to bring a supply of towels. Plastic bags will be provided to ensure that all dirty clothes are properly contained for the trip home.
The Hines Park Nankin Mills Area is located on Hines Drive, east of Ann Arbor Trail in Westland. Sponsors for Mud Day include: ITC Holdings, Community Alliance Credit Union, Parkside Credit Union, Clorox Plus and the Western Wayne County HMRT.
