This Saturday, May 17th is Mud Day! What on earth is Mud Day, you ask? Mud Day is a spring festival celebrating the Berkshires landscape & the environment. The festival is held at Muddy Brook Elementary School – 318 Monument Valley Rd., in Great Barrington, from 11am – 3pm. The event is open to the public.
We went last year with the kids & it was a blast. It’s such a wholesome family event – no cheesy game booths & prize tickets for junky plastic toys that linger around your house for years. Each class exhibits a project they worked on during the school year related to the environment & conservation. And, the highlight (for the kids, at least) are several mud pits that the kids get to play in. Our kids’ favorite was the tug of war mud pit. They’ll also have lots of fun craft activities for the kids. Last year my daughter spun her own colorful jump rope that she still uses.
To top it off, there will be great food (from Prairie Whale, ice cream from The Scoop & amazing doughnuts from Home Sweet Home Doughnut Shoppe ), musical entertainment & plenty of mud for the kids to romp around in. Important tip: bring a spare change of clothes for your kids & bring them to the festivities in clothes that you don’t mind them getting dirty. Enjoy!
