First time attending and the watermelons were good & sweet! The ATMs were out of money and made it hard to buy merchandise since most want cash.

The watermelon was great and a good selection of food vendors. It was a very hot day, so not a great day for doing any of the rides.

I liked it for the Groupon price. I probably wouldn't have liked it for regular price. It was great for young children. They had free activities. They had good food trucks. I really liked the BBQ and Churro Stix.

It's was our first time. We enjoyed it. It was perfect because they had lots of things to do in the festival and most of them were Included with the paid entrance. Loved that it was lots of watermelon to eat.

Not that it was the events fault, but it was just way too hot the day I went. They had a guy spraying people with water which was refreshing and all the free ice cream/ watermelon was awesome. I would've stayed for the rides but I just couldn't stand the heat, next time they should have a booth giving out free sun screen, it was very much a necessity.

It was my first time going with my family. We enjoyed all the freebies they had not to mention the watermelon was so sweet and juicy. A great family place to go too. Highly recommend to other families. Will definitely go next year. Thank you to all the workers that helped out put this event together.

Standard carnie rides, $5 parking, not many vendors or entertainment. Free watermelon was the best part...lol

From Our Editors

The mighty watermelon—summer's favorite fruit (and vegetable, too)—gets a grand salute at The 55th Annual Watermelon Festival. This juicy celebration features a hand-, mouth-, and eyeful of unique contests, festivities, and fun for families and melon-mavens alike. Here are just a few of the highlights

  • Best Place to Be: Free watermelon for every ticket holder, action-packed contests such as watermelon skiing, culinary demonstrations, fantastic watermelon carvings, bands, music, food, lots of interesting exhibitors plus five watermelon world record attempts by Guinness Book of World Records holder Ron Sarchian
  • Best Messy Contests: Try your balance and skill at watermelon skiing, go face first into a watermelon eating contest, use your mouth-musket to shoot baby melons across the Watermelon Spit-way in a seed-spitting contest
  • Best Mellow Activities: Observe the action from a 65-foot ferris wheel at the carnival, or take the wee ones for pony rides, petting zoo cuteness, and felty storytelling from the Melo-n-dramatic Puppet Theater
  • Best Kid's Zone: Free melon-dramatic children's theater, free pony ride or petting zoo for every child ticket, stunt riders in the BMX Bike Show, kid's games, baloon hats and animals, arts and crafts, face painting, pony rides and petting zoo plus a full carnival
