More than 200 children participated in the first-ever Mini-Mudder Romp as part of Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown’s Great Outdoors Day on Saturday, June 21.

Children had a chance to have fun and get dirty as they ran through 23 obstacles including the Saloon Scurry, the Washday Whirlwind, and the Derrick Splash.

“I had no idea this many people would show up,” said Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown museum director Mark Osborne. “This is great!”Eighty-two children pre-registered. Osborne said all the money raised will pay for Mini-Mudder Romp T-shirts, supplies and refreshments and fund next year’s event, as well as museum expenses and activities.
