Frog Follies Is Back In Evansville This Weekend
The rods are back in town this weekend as E’ville Iron Street Rod Club presents another Frog Follies event. Thousands of cars will pour into the Vanderburgh 4H Fairgrounds for the 37th year of the Follies.
For the third straight year the Frog Follies holds the distinction of being the largest Rod event in the world featuring only cars older than 1949. Judging from past shows, it’s likely that there will be over 4000 vehicles in attendance Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In other years, they’ve had cars from all 48 continental states as well as cars from Alaska, Canada, and even Australia! The best part about E’ville Iron and the Frog Follies is the good it does for the community. As always, this year Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center will benefit from show. Frog Follies has been responsible for over $2 Million in donations to local charities and scholarships.
If you come to the Frog Follies, not only will you be able to see all the awesome rods, but you can also shop the Swap Meet and the Women’s World Open. And don’t forget the ever-so-popular Celebrity Frog Race. I missed last year, but I am returning for my 4th year and hoping to take the win as a tickle a frog’s behind with a feather and hope he jumps across the finish line first…it’s a very scientific process.
Gates open Fri-Sun at 8am and run to 4pm on Friday and Saturday and 2pm on Sunday. Admission is just $5 for adults and kids 12 and under are free.
