Frog Jump Festival 2010, Ohio, United States

For more than 45 years thousands of people annually attend the Frog Jump Festival in Valley City, Ohio. This year more than 2,000 people gathered for the event bringing 600 frogs to it.
Frog jumping is a competitive pastime in which frogs compete to jump certain distances. Frog jumping contests are held in small communities scattered around the United States, as part of the folk culture. Frog jumping was made famous in a short story by Mark Twain, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." The annual event in Calaveras County continues, with 4,000 contestants entering the 2007 event. Participants entering the longest jumping frog were to win a $750 prize or $5,000 if their frog breaks the 1986 record of 21 feet, 5¾ inches set by Rosie the Ribeter.
