This festival certainly isn't good, clean fun.

A mud festival in Westland, Mich., let kids play dirty on July 12. Children ages 12 and under had a chance to frolic in the muck at Wayne County's 2011 Mud Day, held at Hines Park-Nankin Mills Area, according to MyFoxDetroit.

The 24th annual Mud Day drew more than 1,000 kids -- not to mention 20,000 gallons of water and 200 tons of topsoil, The Detroit Free Press reports.
