Conway Scene Weekly: May 14, 2021

 


Here is the latest Conway Scene Weekly for May 14, 2021. Have a great week!


Toad Suck Daze. Whenever I utter those words to friends who live in different parts of the country or world, there is usually a giggle or gasp.

One of the things that we have at Toad Suck Daze is the World Championship Toad Races.

I admit, it is a lot of fun to watch the kids try their hardest to will their toad down their lane. They work hard I tell you.

The Toad Suck Races took place this afternoon. And, the weather was absolutely perfect!

It seems they had some trouble getting toads this year, but they found enough, just in time.

Fun was had by all.

I stopped by to snap a few pictures. Those Toadmaster guys are kind of funny.

 

Next week, the Creative Insitute will be holding an open house. For those interested in going into the creative industry, it would be a great opportunity to see the space and meet the faculty.
