MapBoryeong Mud Festival 2010.

Last weekend we headed out of Incheon by bus and went south to Daecheon beach in Boryeong. Our goal? Get muddy at the 13th annual Mud Festival. For this event they bring in truck loads of mud that is said to be rich in minerals and great for your skin.

At the festival there were thousands of other guests dressed in bathing suits and ready with waterproof cameras to take the plunge into the mud. The options were endless when you finally made the decision to "get muddy buddy!" They had mud painting, mud sculptures, mud wrestling, mud buckets, mud prison, mud slides, mud obstacles, mud hoses and more!

The festival is held on the main strip beside the beach. The easy access to the water was useful for a quick rinse. Our friend's band called "The Noise" took the stage on the beach and played a crowd pleasing set on Saturday afternoon.

It was a wonderful weekend. We watched fireworks, made friends enjoyed barbecue, swam, and even got in some sun bathing when the sun decided to come out on Sunday.

Boryeong Mud Festival, CHECK! Six more weeks in South Korea and I'm still getting through my 'to do' list. :)
