Mud Fest


This week is one of Korea's most sacred traditional events: Mud Fest.

Mud Fest is actually a genius of Korean marketing.  Boryeong is a small beach town with really no resources other than the kind of mud that is used in mud masks.  So... what do you do when you're in Korea and have nothing but mud?  You celebrate it!  How?  By inviting all the foreigners you can to come play in your mud. 

So.. what does that look like? Well, for 9 days every year, it looks something like this:

Needless to say... it's a time to just have a lot of crazy fun getting dirty, then jump in the ocean to get the mud off.
