During June, August, and October in Michigan, when people say they are going to a mud bog, more than likely they are heading to an area just outside the small town of Howell in Livingston County. Everyone around these parts knows that the Perkins bog is the place to be. Dan Perkins, owner of the event, has been holding mud bogs on his property for the last 20 years. Each year the event grows and pulls in more happy-as-heck mud fanatics.
Dan officially holds three mud bogs a year. The average event pulls in 100-plus trucks. The attendance at the bogs also pulls in and average of 3,000 spectators. The spectators love watching the truck folks do their thing in the mud. It is party central up there!
Dan works hard at getting the events ready; it takes him and about 30 friends and family members two weeks to prep the place. At any time during the mud bog you can find Dan driving around on his Razor with a huge grin making sure everyone is having a great time. The fun for Dan is watching people having a good time and the children enjoying the trucks in the mud pit. Don’t miss the next Perkins Mud Bog event in October.
