In search of sloppy, sticky, ooey-gooey family fun? Then make sure Messy Fest is on the calendar, because the second-annual Queen Creek celebration of all things slimy, slippery, sweet, and FUN is taking over Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Center this September.
Set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, September 16 at the park located at 20464 E Riggs Road, Queen Creek, Messy Fest is a family-friendly event of epic proportions, with this year’s festivities set to include more activities, a larger rinse zone and more opportunities for mess-making than ever before. From massive mud and mashed potato mosh pits to slime zones, mud obstacle courses, food fights, grape stomps and ice scream slip-and-slides, Messy Fest lives up to its motto, “Life’s too short to play clean,” and a portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Camp Rainbow.
This year’s fest features an oversized rinse zone and a human car wash that ensure attendees go home nice and tidy, but because of the nature of the event, guests are encouraged to come donning old clothes they don’t mind getting torn, dirty or damaged.
In addition to benefiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Camp Rainbow, kids from the hospital will also receive invites to come down and take part in the day of play. Tickets are on sale now, and they are available for $25. For more about Messy Fest, visit MessyFest.com or follow developments on Facebook.
