Watermelon Carnival 2012
The Watermelon Carnival 2012 was really good. It was low-key but very nice. I did not take many pictures but the truth is that I made the number one mistake of forgetting my camera. The weather was hot but not blistering like in former years and it was a very fun event. The largest melon was at 156 lbs this year and there were several well over 100 lbs. Here is a pic of one of the biggest.
My cousin, Burney, came down to try his hand at selling watermelons and he and his friend, Peyton ,had a good time. They had a lot of yellow-meat melons and sold quite a few.
