Photos: Mud Wars




Saturday kicked off St. Petersburg's third annual Extreme Mud Wars at Spa Beach Park. This year, 96 teams paid about $300 each to compete over two days in eight challenges, including football, jousting and tug of war. All in mud.

Each competition had its own arena. These were not mere backyard, water-hosed sandboxes. Event staff took nearly a week to set up, hauling in 5,000 sandbags and 80 tons of soil. Eight firehoses spewing countless gallons of water converted the dirt into a sloppy, spectacular mess.
