A girl batters around inflatable boxing gloves in the mud pit in the Summer Redneck Games in East Dublin on Saturday, July 10, 2010. Saved for last, the mud pit is the most popular and anticipated event in the Redneck Games.
The Summer Redneck Games have been held annually since 1996 -- the same summer Atlanta hosted the summer Olympics -- and have regularly attracted a large local, regional and international crowd. Silly competitive events include bobbing for pigs' feet and playing horseshoes with toilet seats, and all proceeds benefit local charities.
