Conway chamber, 501 LIFE launch Toad Suck Kids Club

What if your children could procure a fast-pass and hop to the front of the line at Toad Suck Daze’s popular Toad Races? This is just one exclusive benefit children ages 12 or younger can receive through a Toad Suck Kids Club membership. 501 LIFE is a proud sponsor of this year’s Kids Club.

The Toad Suck Kids Club is a new part of Toad Suck Daze. Mary Margaret Satterfield, director of Toad Suck Daze and events at the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, said the Kids Club is a perfect fit for the largest, free-admission, family festival in Arkansas.

“Surveys have shown that families with children make up Toad Suck Daze’s largest group of attendees,” she said. “The Kids Club is a great way for this population to get the most out of their festival experience.”

For $25, Toad Suck Kids Club members receive a number of perks. A Kids Club T-shirt and wristband are part of the membership and serve as identification when claiming a goodie bag from the Toadal Kids Zone or seeking a spot in the Kids Club line at the Toad Races.

Kids Club members also receive five Toad Bucks. Membership does not cease at the end of the festival; the Toad Master will mail each Kids Club member a card on his or her birthday.

Toad Suck Kids Club memberships will be available for purchase at the Toad Store, which opens Saturday, March 28. Parents can also order a Kids Club membership online at and pick it up at the Toad Store.

A fast-pass to the Toad Races means nothing without a toad. As is customary in Faulkner County, elementary-aged students will receive a Toad Toter at their schools prior to the festival. These boxes, which are donated by International Paper and sponsored by the Log Cabin Democrat, are used to transport toads to Toad Races. A community-wide Toad Round-up takes place after the Toad Toter delivery and before the festival.

The 34th annual Toad Suck Daze festival will take place Friday, May 1, through Sunday, May 3 in Downtown Conway. For more information about the festival, visit
