  • Kermit the Frog Makes First Stop of His 50th Anniversary World Tour - Yahoo! 10/17/05

    Press Release from Yahoo! - October 17, 2005
    Kermit the Frog Makes First Stop of His 50th Anniversary World Tour in Kermit, Texas

    KERMIT, Texas, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- To honor the 50th anniversary of his meteoric rise from the swamp to international icon, Kermit the Frog kicked off his celebratory World Tour on October 14 in the aptly named town of Kermit, Texas (population 5,714). At a press conference, Kermit Mayor Ted Westmoreland officially proclaimed the day "Kermit the Frog Day" in honor of the world's most beloved Frog and presented Kermit the Frog with the key to the city. In addition, the town dedicated a park to Kermit the Frog, painted his image on a water tower, renamed a street "Kermit the Frog Avenue" and arranged for a special, one-day Kermit the Frog cancellation stamp to postmark all mail leaving the Kermit, Texas post office.

    "For 50 years, Kermit the Frog has built a career on knowing the value of making people laugh, bringing smiles to those young and old, and teaching people how to treat one another," noted Westmoreland. "We are proud to share our town's name with such an acclaimed entertainer, as well as call him an honorary citizen of this great community."

    In true Lone Star State spirit, the town of Kermit, Texas embraced the arrival of Kermit the Frog in a grand manner. As part of the Homecoming festivities, Kermit the Frog announced the 2005 Kermit High School Homecoming Queen, was presented as the honorary Homecoming King and served as Grand Marshal in the annual Kermit Homecoming Parade. As a final tribute to the famous Frog, hundreds of townspeople gathered en masse onto the high school's football field. Donning green cowboy hats, they stood in formation to create a "50," as well as an outline of Kermit's head for a one-of-a-kind aerial shot.
