Boryeong Mud Festival


Got mud? If not, you’ll love this event in which you are invited—no, encouraged—to roll, slide, and wrestle in the mud from nearby Daecheon Beach. This mud is said to have healing qualities because of the minerals found in it. In fact, the local cosmetic scene is thriving from its mud-based skin care products. The event is family friendly and packed with fun events anyone will enjoy—just be prepared to get dirty.
