It’s July, which means, if you live in Boryeong, South Korea, it’s time to get dirty. Every year, Boryeong is host to the Boryeong Mud Festival, which has drawn thousands each year since its creation in 1998 as a way to market the health and cosmetic benefits of the region’s mud.

The festival continues through 24 July. Those interested in attending—either this year or in the future—may want to review our tips for keeping your mobile device dry while splashing around!
