Tomorrow (Feb. 16) is the start of the Mud Sales in the Amish town of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, which are auctions where tourists and locals alike have a chance to bid on farm equipment, livestock, and crafts used and made by the Amish.
But dont go expecting good, clean fun.
Spokesperson Mary Witman says the sales are usually held in farm fields, and since theyre starting to thaw out, she guarantees people are bound to be covered in mud from head to toe by the end of the auctions.
And thats the dirty truth about where the Mud Sales name came from.
The mud sales end April 12, and for more info, check out honeybrookfire.org.
