Visitor Tips and News About Tango Frogs of Daddy-O
Sadly, this is no longer Willie's Place. It is now a Petro gas station. The Frogs were relocated across the highway to a private residence.[D Pressinger, 08/12/2013]
Willie may be gone (from Hillsboro) but the Dancing Frogs remain. They now stand outside the home of a friend of Bob "Daddy-O" Wade, who made the frogs, and who still wants people to see them.
I'm glad to know that the frogs are related to Willie. Having arrived from Burning Man, I swore the owners had been on the Playa with me, my niece, and nephew. I drove back around to photograph them for my niece, who collects frogs. The sculpture had Playa dust on it, I'm sure.[Kay Merkel Boruff, 10/18/2012]
"Willie" is Willie Nelson. The frogs used to dance outside his biodiesel station across the highway -- but they've reportedly danced in a few other places too.
The frogs can be seen from I-30 eastbound. They are directly beside the off ramp. We saw no other way to view them but we well could have missed it.[K Wimbush, 07/07/2012]
The frogs are across the interstate on PRIVATE property. Only way to get a quick and not-so-close picture is to pull over as exiting (going north) to Carl's Corner. Ultimate in yard art -- with great wooden nickel sculpture.[Masten Williams, 06/26/2011]
