Frog Fest rescheduled for October
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (May 15, 2010) — Wet weather may be good for frogs, but it’s not good for Waynesville’s Frog Fest.

Heavy rains not only caused water levels in the Roubidoux to become high enough that it would be dangerous to conduct the annual frog race but also caused the Waynesville city park grass to become wet enough that the ground could have been damaged by vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

“The ground in the City Park is saturated and much more rain coming. We do not want to damage the park or put anyone in danger, so best to postpone,” said Waynesville City Clerk Carol Welch.

As a result, event organizers have rescheduled Frog Fest to Oct. 9, when weather conditions are expected to be drier.

Frog Fest includes a “frog kissing” contest in which the participant who received the most donations in cans places around the community has to kiss a frog. Last year’s winner was St. Robert City Administrator Alan Clark; contestants this year are Waynesville Councilwoman Luge Hardman, St. Robert Alderman Todd Williams and Pulaski County Daily News owner Darrell Todd Maurina.

“We hope you will be able to join us and be part of the Frog Kissing Contest,” Welch said. “Otherwise, keep practicing your puckers and we will see you at FROGTOBER FEST!”
