Escape to the mud in Superior this Fourth of July

SUPERIOR – While some people enjoy music in the park and fireworks at dusk, others escape to the roar of the trucks and the flying mud at the Superior Mud Bogs during the  Fourth of July.

For several years the Superior Events Committee has brought the mud and the trucks for two days of fun in the mud off Exit 122. This year, the mud bogs will take place July 4 and 5. Races start at 11 a.m. on the northeast of Marsky Park in Superior or, as the locals will tell you, follow the signs.

There are sideline bleachers or spectators can bring their own chairs. There is playground equipment nearby and lots of parking. Food and drinks are available as well as primitive camping. A live announcer will call the family fun event.
