The eighth annual Sumiton Frog Festival drew thousands of visitors on Saturday. After rain and cold weather dampened last year’s festival, organizers were thrilled with the sunny, autumn weather Saturday. The 2013 festival attracted a record number of booths, forcing organizers to turn away late applicants, but still boasting over 200 exhibitors, offering crafts, goods, face painting and food, among other things. The addition of a gospel stage drew crowds this year and the children’s area featured a frog-themed ride. – Photo by: Rachel Davis.
