Take a look at what's going on at this weekend's annual Frogtober Fest in Waynesville.
1.) Waynesville's Frogtober Fest is celebrated annually to commemorate the election of W.H. Croaker, the city's mascot. This weekend will mark the beloved frog's fifteenth year as the city's emblem and the entire community is welcome to attend the jubilation.
2.) Several vendors will gather in the park to sell various treats, as well as Frogtober Fest memorabilia such as commemorative T-shirts, among other goodies.
3.) Meet new people while listening to live music and participating in one of the nation's only frog races.
Why you should attend: "Everyone should come to the festival because we're celebrating W.H. Croaker's fifteenth birthday. It's always a fun time. There's food, the frog race, music, and it's at the beautiful Roubidoux Park." – Waynesville Mayor Luge Hardman
