New rules help Muddfest run smoothly
A purpose-built Ford truck kicks up water and mud at the seventh annual Outlaws Muddfest event June 8.
POTH -- Outlaws Muddfest held its seventh annual event June 8, and organizer Russell Dworaczyk said things went off without a hitch.
The fun in the mud drew a healthy crowd, though numbers were admittedly lower this year. Local graduations, as well as the prohibition of minors, certainly dwindled attendance. Still, Muddfest drew participants from across Texas, as well as Oklahoma, Louisiana, Tennessee, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Nebraska.
While attendance was down, so too were incidents or accidents. Emergency services were onsite, though no injuries were reported or treated. Members of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office worked security, and confirmed that there were no fights of any kind. Several officers told Dworaczyk they would be happy to work the event again in the future.
The next event is tentatively set for the first weekend in December, although Dworaczyk isn’t completely sure he will host the event. He is working to make some improvements to the Muddfest site, and will make a final decision on a December event later this year.
In the works for Muddfest are the installation of more lights, construction of a pavilion, and possibly the filming of a DVD. Dworaczyk said he is also considering allowing a limited number of minors to attend, although there will be a strict zero-tolerance policy regarding underage drinking.
