North Conway, NH - Get ready for a weekend of good clean fun in knee deep mud, September 11, 12, 13 when MudBowl comes to Hog Coliseum in the heart of North Conway, NH. Founded in 1975, 2015 Mud Bowl, the championships of mud football, is set to return to North Conway's Hog Coliseum Friday through Sunday, Sept. 11 through 13, 2015. The games feature two-hand touch football, played in knee-deep mud, with seven players per side. Teams with names like the Mud Gumbys or Mt Washington Valley Hogs come from throughout New England to play for the title of World Champions.
This year Mud Bowl will celebrate a theme of “Mud Bowl Takes a Muddy Look at Children's Books” during the Tournament of Mud Parade, which takes place Saturday, September 13, kicking off at 10:00am near John Fuller School and parading down Main Street to Schouler Park. Teams compete for applause with zany floats and costumes much to the adoration of their fans.
Three-day tickets are $15; day tickets are $6 ages 14 and up, and $4 ages 6 to 13; family tickets (two adults, two children) are $15 per day. Advance tickets can be purchased at the North Conway Community Center, and the Mt Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. Three-day tickets serve as entry to two $500 prize drawings held Saturday and Sunday (one need not be present to win). Proceeds benefit local charities, with more than $860,000 having been raised since the first games were played locally in 1976. Tickets are available at the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce.
