Why are there so many signs about rainbows?

This bridge over Deer Creek along Old Highway 61 was named after the infamous song from 1979 film, The Muppet Movie in honor of Jim Henson who was the mastermind behind The Muppets franchise (now owned by The Walt Disney Company).

The bridge is located just down the road from The Birthplace of Kermit The Frog Museum in Henson’s boyhood town of Leland, Mississippi, which hosts an annual event devoted to Kermit each Fall called FrogFest.

A sign along the bridge designates it’s significance along Deer Creek
