Participants enjoy mud during the 14th Annual Boryeong Mud Festival at Daecheon Beach on July 16, 2011 in Boryeong, South Korea. The mud, which is believed to have beneficial effects on the skin due to its mineral content, is sourced from mud flats near Boryeong and transported to the beach by truck.
