Toadally awesome

This weekend featured a couple of hours when the skies were not pouring down rain. We took advantage of them to go to Toad Suck Daze, the annual highlight of Conway social life.

You are here!

Dancing to Guns 'N Roses in Toad Suck Square.

These people have been standing with their hands on that truck for 70 hours and 15 minutes.

As much fun as the rides themselves -- measuring to see if you are tall enough to ride.


Mom's favorite carnival ride ... yet she was not allowed onto the carousel.

A prize for every child.

The kids would not let us leave until we put them on the tiny Ferris wheel.

Kid food on a stick -- corn dog style!

Adult food on a stick -- sausage style!

Dessert on a stick -- fried Twinkie style!

Toad Suck Daze was (and I quote) "fabulous! stupendous! amazing!"

What's the story behind Toad Suck Daze?

If you haven't seen it (and can find it), the documentary Hands on a Hard Body is a fascinating look at one of those contests.
