SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- This Saturday, the City of San Diego invites all children to play in the mud.

In a celebration of nature and friendship, “International Mud Day” encourages kids to get dirty together. First celebrated between Australia and Nepal in 2009, the holiday has spread to cities across the world.

Saturday will mark San Diego’s 2nd Mud Day celebration. All children and their families are invited to Crown Point Park in Mission Bay from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

After a successful celebration in 2018, the City has expanded the event to include obstacle courses, nature crafts, and more. From mud forts to food trucks, there will be many ways to families to have fun getting dirty.

Dr. Bronner’s Magic Foam Experience will make a special appearance, to make sure no one tracks mud back home.

The event is free, but families are encouraged to register here. Sturdy shoes, towels and a change of clothes are strongly recommended for those planning to attend.
