Mom always told you to stay out of the mud. But not Saturday.

That's because it was International Mud Day at Highbanks metro Park in Powell. It provided kids a chance to play in the mud.

Metro Parks organizes this annual event to teach kids the importance of soil and its role in making things grow.

International Mud Day is a world-wide event. It began two years ago in the country of Nepal to raise awareness about soil conservation.
