Great event held in the history of Thonse though its location in Mud Thonse people from both the Gramas Mudu and Padu took part in the sports activities.

There was a time people hesitated to get into the mud even the farmers children abandoned the farm work.

Alas it is inspiring you get once into it you enjoy the most in the mud-field!

Cool weather an atmosphere where beauty is wrapped in greenery in August that too in Kemmannu.

The happiness in the face of those participated expressed and can be seen in the pictures.

If such a sports event promoted by the minister for sports in our region we can have these exciting events activities all over the monsoon season getting wet and playing in mud is fun.
