Mighty Mud Mania Festival slated Saturday

The 21st annual Mighty Mud Mania Fest-ival will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sat-urday, July 30, at Jefferson Barracks Park.

The Mighty Mud Mania Festival not only includes the obstacle course, but inflatable rides, treasure sand pits and face painting.

Children are required to shower off be-fore going to other attractions — they can be wet, but not muddy.

The festival is conducted regardless of the weather. In the event of lightning, the festival is closed until the threat has passed.

The cost is $6 per child in advance or $7 at the gate and includes all activities. Adults are admitted free.

The Department of Parks and Recreation, Oakville TREND Boosters and the Mis-souri American Water Co. jointly sponsor the Mighty Mud Mania Festival.

Mighty Mud Mania is accessible for children of all abilities — if special accommodations are required, festival staff at the registration table must be advised upon arrival of the child. Advance reservations are recommended, as walk-in registration is limited to space availability. A parent or guardian must be present for each child to sign the consent form.

For reservations, call (314) 638-2100.
