Classic cars are revving up around the Tri-State this weekend for the annual Frog Follies event. Classic cars and excited crowds fill the Vanderburgh County Fair grounds, behind every car an owner, behind every owner a story. "It's a 1937 Chevy," says Emma Thompson. Some owners a little smaller than others. Eight year old Thompson proudly displays her classic at the Frog Follies. She may be the youngest car owner around, and though she can't drive it, there is one thing she loves to do. "Showing it off," says Thompson. Thompson's grandfather purchased the classic and decided to restore it, giving it to his granddaughter who turned out to be quite the business woman. "You can't have it," says dad Mike Thompson. This car is not for sale. "She's decided that she's going to keep it for generations," says Mike Thompson. This pint sized owner can't put a price on something special to her. "Actually the car is called 'Baca Baca.' That's what, when she was one, she would call her grandaddy was, 'Baca Baca.' So, the name of the car is named after that," says Mike Thompson.
That's the funny thing about the Frog Follies. Love is in the air. Whether you love one of these classic cars, or someone that's right here. "Are you really doing this? Oh, that's cool. It's different," says Jack and Sandy Markham. A Frog Follies first. Holy matrimony under the stars, or frogs for this couple. "Thirty years ago when we got together, this is where we were always at. I said Jack, if we ever get married, we are going to do it at the Frog Follies because all of our friends are here," says Sandy Markham. Surrounded by green and their closest friends, Jack and Sandy Markham tie the knot. "I think it's good, and people enjoy seeing something like this," says Jack Markham. There is no need to figure out how to celebrate their first anniversary. Next year these newly weds will be at the Frog Follies.
