MAHOPAC, N.Y. -- Area kids and families are welcome to attend the 2016 Muddy Puddles Mess Fest Saturday, July 30 at Camp Kiwi Day Camp in Mahopac.
This fun event is a fundraiser to battle childhood cancer.
It allows kids to "let loose and get messy" while money in honor of Ty Louis Campbell who died from brain cancer at age five.
On his memory, the activities planned allow participants to set their "inner child" free and "laugh, play and get messy," according to an announcement.
Nickelodian character Peppa Pig (who loves jumping in muddy puddles), zip lines, splatter paint, pie tosses, slip n’ slides, food fights, muddy puddle jumping, and a “slopstacle course” are all planned.
The event raises fund for childhood cancer research through the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation.
During his treatment, Ty longed to jump in muddy puddles again, but the disease prevented him from doing so.
So in Ty’s honor parents are asked to let their kids enjoy the "simple pleasure" of the planned activities.
The event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. is at the camp, 825 Union Valley Road, Mahopac, N.Y.
