In keeping with a long standing tradition at Mendota Hills, every Sunday morning, everyone assembles in front of the store for the Frog Jumping Contest. Kids bring the frog they caught the night before and race them. Naturally, we award prizes to the kids, so make sure you bring a flash light and net when you come.
