Toad Suck Daze

John Duke has alerted me too late for me to attend. But I can mark my calendar for next year.

ToadSuckHomePage: "Join us this year for Arkansas' most popular festival! May 4th - 6th in downtown Conway."

Today'sthv.com: You don't have to spend a lot of green to go to Toad Suck Daze in Conway this weekend, May 4-6. In fact, admission is free. This is one of the least expensive festivals in the state.

There is absolutely no charge to attend, so admission is free, the great musical entertainment, like Bret Michaels, Confederate Railroad and Sammy Kershaw, are all free. The Firefighter Challenge for the kids is also free. One of the main attractions, the toad races, is also free to enter. (See link below pictures for the schedule of events.)

Of course, not everything is free. You will need to bring some money, but there's something different this year called Toad Bucks.

There will be stands throughout the festival where you trade your real bucks for Toad Bucks. Toad Bucks will be the only type of money the concessions and rides will accept. Unfortunately, you can't cash your unused tickets in at the end of your visit.
