Can it be too messy for Mess Fest?
Mother Nature has apparently said yes, the deluge this week coupled with more rain in the forecast for Saturday has prompted Mess Fest organizers in Loris to postpone the inaugural event to Aug. 18, weather permitting and fingers crossed.
Geared for children infants to age 12, Mess Fest was planned this Saturday, now set two weeks away, for the grassy lot on Casey Street. Events in addition to those already announced are likely, and there will be updated stories as Mess Fest take two draws closer.
At least 18 stations are planned to get wet, spray painted and slimed. Stations will include an oozing oobleck, fly swat station, shower station, slime station, hair art, messy Monet station, slime jump, oil pit, bubble fun pond, mud pies for tots, sundae slide, alphabetti spaghetti, slip and slide, mud pit, splash pad, messy warrior course, paint a car and splat arena.
Children are asked to either wear old clothes or swimsuits for this fun-filled day of getting dirty and messy. Eye protection will be sold, but everyone can bring their own.
Look for more on this event in coming Tabor-Loris Tribune editions in print and online.
