Country music shines at FrogFest



Dust off your cowboy boots and hats because Big Frog 104 is bringing the biggest and hottest country concert to the Utica Rome Speedway – FrogFest! The Utica Rome Speedway is located at 5591 Route 5 in Vernon.  Country fans from all over CNY will be heading over this Saturday, June 9 to catch their favorite local bands: Lonesome Dove and Tompkins Drive who are no strangers to the FrogFest stage, Eddie Arcuri Jr and Whiskey Creek along with headliner LOCASH and Stephanie Quayle.  And. recently Danielle Roach was named the winner of an online contest and will be performing the Star Spangled Banner.

The gates open at 11:30 a.m. but that doesn’t mean you can’t get there earlier. Fans are known to get together in the parking lot to play their favorite games and listen to their stereos to get primed for the party.  Get ready guys and gals because Empire Cornhole and Big Frog 104 are adding a summer staple game to the party – Cornhole!  This year there will be a Cornhole Tournament where you can win your own cornhole game that will be signed by LOCASH and meet the guys! And, if it couldn’t get any cooler they will be donating a portion of the proceeds to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

FrogFest is a great way to spend the day all while listening to great music in a great atmosphere. The forecast so far is looking good so make sure you pack your sunscreen and drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Tickets are only $20 if you buy them in advance but will go up to $25 the day of the event; kids younger than 10 are free.
