Real Good for FREE: MudFest @ the Prattsville Town Green, 8/23-24/13

Following the devastation of Hurricane Irene in 2011, Gov. Andrew Cuomo deemed Prattsville the “worst-hit” community. In the efforts to rebuild, the Catskill mountain town has established MudFest, a festival of music, mud, art and more – all designed to celebrate the spirit of resilience.

This year’s MudFest is scheduled to take place 5-9:30pm on Friday, August 23, and 9am-9pm on Saturday, August 24, on the Prattsville Town Green on Main Street, featuring an artisan fair, a zipline, a giant mud slip, mud volleyball, food and fireworks.

And, of course, there will be live music…
