Last Friday I was chatting with a friend who works in Falfurrias, Texas. He was telling me that this weekend they are having their annual watermelon festival.
I was a bit surprised as I had never heard of it. He assured me that it's a big event for the city. Some organizations have significant fundraisers during the festival.
One of the big draws is judging giant watermelons. I'd like to see that. So, I think I'll make my way over to Falfurrias this weekend to check out their event. I've always wondered what they have going on over there. It's only an hour drive away. But, it's an extremely boring drive.
I found this on the Falfurrias Volunteer Fire Department page on FB.
