Frog Follies kicks off, see some of the events here

Hot rods are taking over Evansville.

They'll be here for the next three days as Frog Follies kicks into high gear.

The vintage cars started arriving as early as Wednesday, just to get their favorite spot on the grounds.

"I think they'll fight for em, I'm not sure," says Bob Bell, with the E'Ville Iron Street Rod Club, the organization which organizes the event.

Once everyone is situated, you'll see a rainbow of Fords and Chevy's.

"I come back to the show, because it's a great show, very laid back," says Kathy Schmidt, who drove in all the way from Delaware-- that's a 16 hour drive.

Aside from all the cars there are tons of fun events.

For example, there is a worm eating contest Friday at 7 p.m., which may be more fun to watch than actually play.

The swap meet, where you can get any car part imaginable will be open through all of Frog Follies.

And of course the famous frog races take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

This year there will also be a special wedding.

"We have some folks that have been street rodders coming to the Frog Follies for a number of years as boyfriend girlfriend, they are actually going to have a wedding," says Bell.

That wedding will take place on at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Frog Follies is open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Sunday.
