Little town, big watermelons: Fair Bluff Watermelon Festival is this weekend

A watermelon eating contest and many other time-honored traditions will be available at the Fair Bluff Watermelon Festival, held on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Riverside Drive — but don’t miss out on the street dance and food truck rodeo held Friday (tonight), from 7 to 9 p.m.

From a street dance on Friday to a watermelon eating contest, parade and coronation of the Watermelon Queen and fellow royalty on Saturday, there’s so much fun to be had at the 36th annual Fair Bluff Watermelon Festival that it has to be spread out over two days.
