June 14, 2011 · 2:03 PM
The annual Fall City Days watermelon contest is all about community involvement and having a big, red, juicy good time in the bargain.
The watermelon-eating competition happens rain or shine at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at at Olive Taylor Quigley Park. The contest is free to participate and is sponsored by Farmhouse Market.
Divided by ages, the contest seeks the person who can most quickly devour melons. The older you are, the more fruit you have to eat. It’s amazing and fun to watch
A drawing will be held at 1:15 p.m. to pick the 10 people that will compete in each category. Age groups are 5 to 7, 8 to 10, 11 to 13 and 14 and older.
Contestants must complete an entry form and bring it to Olive Quigley Park by 1 p.m. to take part.
