It’s a good ol’ fashioned watermelon eating contest!
In most situations, eating your meals as fast as possible is considered bad manners, but, for one afternoon, we’re asking you to leave your manners behind!
Can you see it now? Chariots of Fire starts to play in the background as watermelon juice dribbles down your chin in slow motion. It was close, but you managed to bite that last bit of watermelon off its rind only seconds before the other contestants. The crowd goes wild as you claim not only your prize, but your rightful position as River District Watermelon Eating Champion.
We can’t promise it’ll be quite as dramatic, but we promise it’ll be just as much fun! Join us August 23 at the River District Farmers Market for our Watermelon Eating Contest.
Participate in one of four age groups: (1) ages 6 and under, (2) ages 7-11, (3) ages 12-18, and (4) 18 and up.
Date: Saturday, August 23
Location: back lawn of River District Farmers Market, 8683 Kerr Street
