Frog Frolic at the Mark Twain Library Today (5/3)!

Saturday, May 3rd • 10 am – 4 pm

Almost two decades after a group of mothers gathered for Story Time and collaborated to create what is now Redding’s biggest and best springtime family event, the Frog Frolic returns with new energy and excitement with help from Lead Sponsor Melissa and Doug.

An amazing day of fun for families that includes endless activities and games, entertainment, food, and prizes! Family favorites will all be there: Kiss-A-Frog, Bubble Garden, Bounce Houses, Touch-A-Truck, Storybook Characters, Book Sale and an amazing assortment of make your own crafts! Don’t miss our phenomenal Silent Auction where you’ll find everything from family entertainment to Mother’s Day treasures to unique town offerings! All ages will never forget this wonderful day of fun and community with their friends and neighbors!

This year, the 6th Annual Cake Walk has chosen a theme of “Storybook Character” cakes. Let your imagination fly and decorate to your heart’s content! All entries will be judged solely on appearance and will be awarded as prizes in the Cake Walk so everyone is a winner! Young bakers are encouraged with both an adult and junior divisions. Join First Selectman Julia Pemberton and other town dignitaries for the judging!

Rain or shine. In the event of rain, the Frolic will move indoors. Admission is free. Concessions will be available for purchase from the Food Tent!

The Frog Frolic has been made possible by the help of a wonderful and dedicated group of volunteers and the generous goodwill of the entire Redding community. It is through this generosity and our sponsors that we can work towards the Library’s mission to honor Mark Twain’s vision of this library as a center for intellectual, educational, social and cultural enrichment.
