Looking for some family fun this weekend? Here's a local favorite you should check out.

Grab the kids, and head on over to the 23rd Annual Frog Frolic, this Saturday, April 28th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Redding Community Center on 37 Lonetown Road. The event has free admission and is open to the public.

The Frog Frolic is a benefit fundraiser for the Mark Twain Library, Redding's cultural hub, founded by the legendary Samuel Clemens.

Tons of things going on at the Frolic like a Bubble Garden for toddlers, Touch-a-Truck, bouncy houses, entertainment, games, crafts, food, storybook characters and a silent auction. Plus arts and crafts for both kids young and old to participate in.

And if you love cake, boy are you in luck. This years Frog Frolic boasts the
10th Annual Cake Walk, where bakers of all ages compete to have their decorated cakes awarded first prize. This year’s theme is “A Happy Un-birthday to You”, and I love the concept behind the theme. My birthday is May 26th, but I always tell people May is my entire birthday month of celebration so I'm totally down Frog Frolic deciding the theme is the idea of celebrating your birthday on any or all of the other 364 days of the year, birthday or not!

For more information on the 23rd annual Frog Frolic go to marktwainlibrary.org, or call 203-938-2545. The Mark Twain Library is owned by the Mark Twain Library Association. It was founded in 1908 by Samuel Clemens – Mark Twain himself – one of Redding’s most celebrated residents.
