About 4,000 contestants entered the annual Jumping Frog Jubilee this year. According to the event’s organizers, that was twice as many as last year.
The annual event is inspired by “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” Mark Twain’s tale of a frog-jumping contest.
Winning frog owners get a $750 prize or $5,000 if their frog breaks the 1986 record of 21 feet, 5¾ inches set by Rosie the Ribeter.
