The ultra-hip and cool

Toadfest 2012 rocks a new look

Watch out Milan and Paris runways, the Summit Lake toad-shirt is sure to hit the ground crawling, catching whatever fashion flies its way!

Amid all the usual bucket-twirling kids and terrarium-terrorized toads and snakes, this year’s Toadfest put on by the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program flaunted some new fun.

Watch out Milan and Paris runways, the toad-shirt is sure to hit the ground crawling, catching whatever fashion flies its way! Yes, this year the two-day celebration of the great Western Toad migration across Highway 6 and up the mountain had t-shirts commemorating the toadlets’ epic struggle to get to the other side.

A striking green emblazoned with “Toadfest 2012” and a swath of toadlet silhouettes smeared diagonally across the shirt (whole, not roadkilled), the shirts are sure to be a hit when worn by anyone with a love of toads and fifteen bucks.

Kootenay fashionistas, beware! If you didn’t buy your shirt, you’re already so last season. If, like me, you forgot to bring cash, the only green you too will be wearing this year will be envy. Better luck in 2013.
