August 3rd National Watermelon Day

It’s summer! What’s better than summer? Summer and… Watermelon Day! July and August are the months watermelon is generally harvested so it only seems natural to have Watermelon Day in August. There is nothing like cooling down and relaxing with a slice of watermelon on a hot day. Watermelons can grow to a hundred pounds or more, the largest recorded to date is 350 pounds found by Chris Kent on October 4th, 2013.

How to celebrate – Go to watermelon farm and pick your own watermelon. Have a seed spitting contest! Grow your own watermelon in the backyard but be careful, the vines go everywhere and climb anywhere!
