Ten teams from throughout New England play in these zany games, which raise money for local charities. Primary beneficiaries are North Conway Day Care, North Conway Community Center and Carroll County Retired Senior Volunteer Program.
The 30th Tournament of Mud Parade is set for Saturday, Sept. 8, at 10 a.m. featuring a team and an open class.

Cranmore is celebrating its 75th anniversary this upcoming season.
