Ready, Set, Toooooooooooad!!!!

It's Toad Suck Daze in these parts.
Toad Suck is a yearly festival in Conway.
Something to do with the history of the Arkansas River and the sailors that used to drink so much they swelled like toads when they docked here.

Anyway we have a big 3 day hoopla of
toad races
(Luke won his!)
craft booths, carny rides,
and fried food on a stick.
What more could you ask for?

Oh yeah!
There's Stuck on a Truck!!!
Check out the webcam to see how the contestants are fairing so far.

The rain about did us in this year. Saturday turned out to be a total wash out. They completely cancelled it and we were so looking forward to seeing Robert Randolph last night and David was really upset that his music group from school didn't get to preform :(

I feel so sorry for the vendors. I heard through my friend Chris who has a booth there that she had a ton of water in her booth but that she fared better than some who had completely lost their tents.

It's Sunday today and the last day of the festivities and I believe the last little rain cloud is passing now. Hopefully we can get a tad bit more of the toady experience in before the day is over.

It sounds like a toadally fun festival despite the rain. Hopefully yesterday was a better day for the vendors.
