Follow that frog!

A project of Thread City Development, Hoppy Trails is a photo project created to celebrate and bring awareness to Willimantic and northeast Connecticut. Four stuffed frogs, each accompanied by a photographer, will explore northeast Connecticut while their human guide captures their excursions in a series of photographs. The frogs – Willy, Manny, Windy and Swifty – are named after the four bronze frog statues that adorn Thread City Crossing, commonly known as The Frog Bridge.

In November, the frogs return to Willimantic in time to celebrate the Thread City Crossing frogs receiving their winter scarves. Last year Thread City Development, in partnership with Willimantic Renaissance, hosted a fundraiser – S.O.S. Save Our Scarves –to raise money for new winter scarves for the frog statues. The previous scarves had gotten damaged and lost during winter 2012.


The Hoppy Trails photo project finale will be an exhibit at the Kerri Art Studio & Gallery, 861 Main St, Willimantic OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 2
