“This is the fifth year we’ve held Wear Ya Wellies and we are amazed at how the crowd grows each year,” she said.

“With help from our lo­cal vol­un­teers and gen­er­ous spon­sors, we look for­ward to mak­ing the event big­ger and mud­dier in the years to come.

“We love pro­vid­ing kids with the op­por­tu­nity to get messy and ex­pe­ri­ence the fun of mud and na­ture.”
