If you are a fan of Texas-sized celebrations then we have found a deliciously refreshing one for you to attend this summer. The Dallas Farmers Market is having its second annual Watermelon Festival this summer on August 3rd, and it is going to be so refreshing.
From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. you'll be able to enjoy everything watermelon themed, from eating competitions to watermelon bowling. Enjoy the sweetest watermelon drinks and melon-y foods during this incredible festival. The fest will also have everything the market usually has so you won't have to worry about missing out on getting all of your regular favorite fruits.
The festival will have live music and flavored drinks that you can sip right out of the watermelon. You will also be able to see artists carve amazing and beautiful creations out of the watermelons themselves. The event will have demonstrations on all the things you can do at home with the delicious fruit and more. Even though there will be literal truck loads of watermelons, there will also be all kinds of locally grown fruits and veggies there for you to purchase.
The cutest animals ever will also be there including ponies and parrots that you can play with. There will be a seed spitting competition, so sign up for that if you're tough enough! Several types of watermelons will be ready for you to buy including Sugar Babies, Truck Busters and Summer Gold. The event is free to enter and there will be plenty of vendors selling everything imaginable so there will be something for everyone. The event will feature games and activities all day long.
The Dallas Farmers Market is located at 920 S. Harwood street. To keep updated on the event and for more information on the farmers market, you can visit their Facebook event page here.
