The Tiny Kentucky Town That Transforms Into A Watermelon Wonderland Each Year
Kentucky loves a good festival and the tastier the theme, the better. If you need proof, simply look to the World Chicken Festival, the Beer Cheese Festival, or even the Kentucky State BBQ Festival. We like to throw a food-related party and when we do, we go all out. One town has been in on this fun for almost four decades and this year you’ll want to mark your calendar for its event. Tompkinsville in Monroe County transforms into a watermelon wonderland each year and it’s quite possibly the sweetest gathering in Kentucky.
The Monroe County Watermelon Festival is a fun-filled day in Kentucky with plenty of things to do, events to see, and of course, watermelon to eat. Have you been to this watermelon wonderland in Kentucky? Any other watermelon festivals in our state we should know about? Let us know in the comments!
