Participants in the 2017 Kanuma Mud Festival in Kanuma, Tochigi Prefecture, splash around in a muddy field on Aug. 20, 2017. Approximately 400 people from both inside and outside Kanuma took part in the festival, which has been held annually since 2014. This year's festival included events such as "flag racing" and "soft volleyball" in the mud -- attracting laughter and cheers from onlookers. Commenting on the mud festival, one of the organizers stated, "This is the last big event of the summer in this area. Make some great memories!" (Mainichi)
