The 10-minute movie tells the compelling story of Frog’s invitation to be the Honored Animal of 2020 and lead the Sinterklaas Parade, but his appearance had to be postponed due to the cancellation of this year’s event.

Undaunted and committed to the children of Rhinebeck’s joy, the Frog, through magic of a stellar sort, makes his way into Rhinebeck to gift Sinterklaas Stars throughout the Village and let the children know that Sinterklaas will be back in 2021.
