This is a wildly popular activity. You will be amazed at the crowd’s enthusiasm as they cheer on the hard working boys and girls. Stop by the Kid’s Tent and check it out!.
FROG JUMPING CONTEST
So how do you teach a frog to jump? There are both youth and adult classes. Frog owners gather on the green space between the Exhibit Hall and the Church to see who has been the most successful frog teacher, or is it just the luckiest? Last year the “top frog” frog took 1st place when he jumped am amazing 96”. This activity is coordinated by the Frog Prince himself, Terry Chevalier and his family. This activity is old time fun at its best.
