"Mighty Mud Mania" began in 1976 as the "Shout It Out Decathlon," a promotional gimmick for Johnson's Wax "Shout" Spray pre-wash. The activity was held in Chaparral Park in Scottsdale and the Johnson's Wax Company provided 300 white t-shirts for the participants. The City of Scottsdale continued to operate the event after Johnson's "Shout" promotion ended. Re-named "Mighty Mud Mania," the activity has been held since then as the kickoff to a great Scottsdale summer!
