The frog program organized by the BI Downtown Association involves having 25 frogs (20” high x 41” long)--embellished by local artists--placed throughout the island at businesses and other prominent locations. Finished frogs will be debuted at the July 4 parade before going on location for the remainder of 2013 through September 2014, then auctioned off to raise money for BIDA. The cost to sponsor a frog to have in a park is $1,200. All levels of donation are welcome. Click here to make a donation online or mail checks to: Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Rec.
