Posted at 10:29 AM, Apr 06, 2020

The Rayne Frog Festival has been canceled.

The festival was slated to happen the first week of May. The festival has happened annually for more than 45 years.

Here's the statement from festival chairman Jeremy Lavergne:

"After much thought and consideration with a heavy heart, I must inform you that we must cancel the Rayne Frog Festival this year. We all agreed it was in our communities best interest to cancel the festival until 2021. These are difficult and trying times during an unprecedented pandemic. The Chamber of Commerce will remain strong and committed to help you get through this pandemic. I want to encourage you to please continue to support all local businesses."
