3rd Annual Mudwest FunFest takes place at the Fairgrounds
RAPID CITY, S.D. -For the third year in a row the Mudwest Funfest was in town. The polo field at the Fairgrounds was transformed into a field of mud pools and an obstacle course.
The festival was a chance for people of all ages to have fun in the mud for a charitable cause. Each year the “Leadership Rapid City” Class of 2016 hosts the event and donates all the proceeds to a non-profit. This year they are donating to Volunteers of America.
Among the muddy activities were mud sliding, mud volleyball, mud yoga, and of course the obstacle course.
Teams of around 5 or 6 people competed in the obstacle course that consisted of tubing down the mudslide, climbing a wall, and running through tires.
Older kids were welcome to play in the mud pool and slide all day and for the little ones, there was a mud puddle where they could make mud pies.
“We would love to grow this; we would like to have this whole area. This area is huge, and we would like to have it packed every year,” said Jamie Hill a board member.
Hundreds of people attended in support and to enjoy the day. For those who preferred not to get messy, there were also food trucks and a beer garden.
