Day nineteen of our photo journey …
With the temperature hovering in the upper nineties all day, it was definitely a sweaty start to our 38th Annual Watermelon Carnival.
You cannot help but spend the entire day smiling and eating!
Can it be? Is it possible? Is Elvis alive at the Watermelon Carnival?
This scene of a man and his boy watching one of the concerts looked so heartwarming that I had to grab a quick picture of it.
The most valued commodity of the Watermelon Carnival so far has been the tubs of ice hiding under some of the vendors tables.
It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Princess Haley and Shona!
The performance of the Derek Stone band out of Tupelo, Mississippi was a hit with everyone! Haley had the band sign the back of her new Derek Stone t-shirt and also bought the band’s outstanding CD.
You can hear their music on the Derek Stone Band MySpace page.
Oh wait! I almost forgot!
You can’t have a watermelon carnival without a ton of watermelons.
This man is very proud of his 122 pound watermelon. Yummy!
Since there is still a few hours left of the street dance tonight, I am headed back there to make sure the kids are staying out of trouble.
If I am busy keeping them out of trouble, I wonder who is going to keep me out of trouble?
Never mind, there is still another full day of this tomorrow. I am more worried if I will survive it all. 🙂
