This week, the Chamber of Commerce announced plans to have Toad Suck Daze this year. This seems like a great big win. This will be the 40th Toad Suck Daze and will take place over a period of time. Events start on April 30th with the Toad Suck Daze Airplane Parade. Events will take place through the rest of May and into June, including music at UCA’s Farris Center.

What a win for our community and education for local students!

The last time we had Toad Suck Daze was in 2019. Below are some articles from that weekend.
