2014 Boryeong Mud Festival

Beauty product for some, excuse to channel their inner child for others, Boryeong Mud means many things to many people. This filthy festival involves wrestling, sliding, massages, and photo contests. Getting dirty has never been so much fun.

The idea for the festival began in 1998 as a promotion for the mineral-rich mud found near Boryeong. When the manufacturers of Boryeong Mud products determined the beneficial effects of their local mud, they invited visitors to slather themselves in the stuff. The event took on a life of its own rather quickly, attracting thousands of visitors to this otherwise sleepy town annually for the beach, the warm weather, and, of course, the mud. Here is a great collection of photos Boryeong Mud Festival 2014.
