Sometimes, Weirdness can be a thing of beauty- and this is exactly what these festivals are!
The world is full of fun and crazy people, and few festivals are solid proof. Across the globe, there are tons of strange and spectacular festivals commemorating everything. Spring and summer seem to be festival seasons, and this time of the year, there’s a lot to celebrate. Warm weather, blossoming flowers, the ability to carry your wife long distances – wait, what??
Humans have an affinity for celebrating the mundane and the ridiculous. If anything, it’s a testament to every culture’s ability to enjoy a good party, no matter the reason.
We have come across some of the craziest, messiest, and most colorful art festivals and national holidays ever. Let’s have a weird look!
Mud Festival, South Korea
We all know, mud is great for our skin. Specifically, the Boryeong mud used in their Boryeong Mud Cosmetics line is great for your skin. To convince a doubtful populace, the company established the Boryeong Mud Festival at idyllic Daecheon beach, where participants get down and dirty in the local mineral-laden mud.
Since then, this festival has become a hit with the Korean ex-pat population. A variety of mud-themed activities take place on the day of the fest, from mud photography to mud massages.
Did you get Dirty? Don’t worry; just take a dip in the sea.
