ANSLEY—It’s Mardi Gras on Muddy Creek! The annual Muddy Creek Celebration recognizes family, fun, and friends this weekend and there is sure to be something for everyone.
There will not be a dull moment this weekend as Ansley celebrates nearly 40 years of community spirit. Many of the weekend events will take place in the Ansley City Park and are fun for the whole family.
Muddy Creek Celebration committee president Chas Fecht said she appreciates everyone helping to bring the celebration to life and enjoys seeing all of the smiles from kids and adults.

For many Ansley natives, the Muddy Creek Celebration serves as a family reunion and time to reconnect with old friends but there is always room for new visitors as well who want to join in on the fun!
“My favorite part I think is seeing the crowd on main street for the parade and the kids running out and getting candy,” Muddy Creek Celebration Treasurer Cathie Jo Mills said. “It’s a busy weekend, everything’s coming up, and we’re all looking forward to seeing everyone here,” she added.
