When you drive around Rayne, everywhere you go you see frog statues lining up the city.
At a Rayne beautification board meeting in 2013, someone mentioned that they wanted something special and unique in Rayne.
So the group discussed it and thought of getting all the local businesses to buy them.
Today, it’s grown into something bigger with 113 total frog statues in the city of Rayne.
“So many people visit us and they just know that this is a special place, if you look at our interstate our murals all over town, everything has frogs everywhere, even if you’ll go to court here you’ll see a frog statue with the judge, he doesn’t look like that but it’s there,” says Mayor Chuck Robichaux.
Every business who receives a frog is required to paint or decorate it.
