I have no idea and the only thing I could find on the web is this.......In 2001, Centennial Bank, started this event. The first event was called "Hug a Bug" and the giveaway was a red Volkswagen Beetle. then in 2002 the name was changed to "Stuck on a Truck"


Anyone else care to shine some light on the subject?

Conway, Arkansas

From the toadsuck.org website...
"What does “Toad Suck” mean anyway?
Well, the answer is quite simple… Long ago, steamboats traveled the Arkansas River when the water was at the right depth. When it wasn’t, the captains and their crew tied up to wait where the Toad Suck Lock and Dam now spans the river. While they waited, they refreshed themselves at the local tavern there, to the dismay of the folks living nearby, who said: “They suck on the bottle ’til they swell up like toads.” Hence, the name Toad Suck. The tavern is long gone, but the legend and fun live on at Toad Suck Daze.

About the Festival
Toad Suck Daze is a FREE ADMISSION festival. A 3-day festival of food, family and fun held on the streets of downtown Conway, Arkansas. This ‘Laid Back Weekend’ occurs annually the first weekend in May and has something for the entire family: arts & crafts, ‘Toadal Kids Zone’, a carnival, local and national entertainment, food, rock wall, petting zoo, ‘Stuck on a Truck’, 5K/10K, golf tournament, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, magicians, and so much more! Toad Suck Daze is also home to ‘The World Championship Toad Races’. The festival is run almost exclusively by volunteers from Conway and Faulkner County, including the local police and fire departments. It has free admission and proceeds go to support higher education in Faulkner County. Since the start of the festival over $1 million has been given in scholarship and towards scholarship endowments. This money has helped over 200 individuals attend local institutes of higher learning.


Here's my question for the next person... How did 'Stuck on a Truck' become part of Toad Suck Daze?

In 1974 there was a tornado here in Forrest City and it destroyed parts of the high school. For the next 2 years or so we had to attend school in mobile buildings.

Last year during the spring with all the flooding the bridge on our county road was effected. Read my blog"My Year in Review" there is a photo of the bridge.
Have you ever visit The Mystic Cavern or Crystal Dome in Harrison?

Yes, we've dug for diamonds more than once. No, we've never found anything, but we do always take a big group and just enjoy playing in the dirt.

Thanks for the info. We may have to check out the fishing.


There's plenty of weather in Arkansas, have you ever been directly affected by tornado or flood?
