The fountain sculpture will be located at the corner of Commerce and Depot streets. Local artist and former Tuscola High School art teacher Bill Eleazer crafted the multi-piece bronze sculpture of three children playing in a pond over thirty years ago. The piece was showcased at the former Biltmore Square Mall in Asheville for many years until its closing for transition to outdoor outlet shopping. “Chasing Tadpoles,” was donated to the Town of Waynesville in early 2014.
Held from 4 to 9 p.m., the Frog Hop is a collaboration between the Frog Level Merchant’s Association, the Downtown Waynesville Association, Waynesville Public Art Commission and the Town of Waynesville.
The Hop will include booths highlighting local artists, live music, food and children’s activities. Music will be provided by ‘Round the Fire at 4 and 6 p.m. and Travelers Club at 7:30 p.m.
