The annual Watermelon Carnival starts today and I am on my porch watching it unfold. This year the Longini Traveling Circus came marching down Main St at 10 o'clock and by some mix-up the Banner Militia band and drill Team was marching from the other direction. They met in front of the park with neither side giving an inch from their parade. 6 watermelon trucks WERE parked at the intersection as hostilities reached a peak. Two elephants are still missing from the circus, 2 watermelon covered blondes are missing from the band and 6 watermelon trucks are sitting empty from the fight.
IT WAS GREAT!
Tonight the usual suspects will gather here to reunite, drink and enjoy the Carnival and fireworks
Hope you can make it by to see us.
