Florida Watermelon Day 2009

June 11, 2009

Last Wednesday, June 3, Terrie and I set up outside the Capitol for Florida Watermelon Day.  The reigning Florida Watermelon Queen, Jessica Southard, was on hand to pass out watermelon slices, recipes and information brochures to people stopping by.  A lot of folks working in the downtown Tallahassee area came over to enjoy watermelon and meet Jessica.  Unfortunately, we got caught in the rain for about a little while, but it stopped just in time for the seed spitting contest (which was hilarious).  Beth Carter from Commissioner Bronson’s office must have seen Terrie’s seed spitting tips because she won the contest!

I really enjoyed being a part of this event.  Sorry if you couldn’t make it, you really missed a good time!  Be sure to stop by next year. Here’s some pictures from the event:
