Mighty Mud Mania 2014
"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 culminating activity of all the Scottsdale Parks and Recreation summer programs.

Mighty Mud Mania offers muddy obstacles for people of all ages and ability levels. We even offer non-muddy activities for those who prefer not to get muddy!
Note: Due to lower pool attendance numbers over the past two years, the Chaparral Aquatic Center (this includes the pool, bathrooms and shower facilities) will not be open at Mighy Mud Mania 2013. We will have plenty of wash stations and restrooms in the park area. Please plan accordingly.
