Learn more about Melon Fest 2017.
Come and have yourself a mouth waterin', rind thumpin', seed spittin', lip smakin', juice running down your chin slice of summer! Tomatoes may be the king of summer, but a juicy sweet melon is surely summer's glory. We are celebrating melons of every shape and size! From watermelon, to cantaloupe, to honeydew, and more...we love every one! We will have a seed spitting contest (two categories: Adults or Kids), melon-themed music, line dancing (learn the watermelon crawl), and lots of watermelon themed items like watermelon baked goods, popsicles, candy, and cookies. There will be watermelon jelly and jams, too. You will see some types of melons that you've never heard of before, and more! Bring some friends and some wet wipes, because this will be a sticky sweet good time! This year we are hoping to have a jumbo watermelon to guess the weight, and then cut for everyone to sample. Keep your fingers crossed for a good growing season, folks! Admission to this event is FREE. See our photo album from last years Melon Fest on our Facebook page or website.
