Every July, thousands flock to Boryeong, South Korea, for its annual Mud Festival. Started in 1998, the 9-day festival originated as a way to market the health and cosmetic benefits of the region’s mud. Tons of mud is trucked to the Daecheon Beach area where it is used as the centerpiece of “Mud Experience Land” complete with mud pools, mud slides, mud prisons, mud skiing competitions and colored mud for body painting.

The festival continues through 28 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!
