108th Annual Melon Festival!
Green River is known for it’s melons – watermelons, cantelope and so many other varieties that I didn’t even recognize. The Vetere family has been growing melons since Eisenhower was in office.
The melons I saw for sale were almost round and about the size of bowling balls - they had a very unusual dark, dark green rind. I'm still contemplating getting one (they're really too big for just one person).
In addition to loads of free watermelon, there was a softball tournament, fair food and all sorts of vendors. I rode my bike from the RV park where I’m spending the night so I didn't have to deal with parking - I don't think there was parking space in the entire town.
|I don't know these people - but I like their T-shirts!|
Tomorrow I head over to camp near Goblin State Park and hike the hoodoos in the park!!
