The Tiny Massachusetts Town That Transforms Into A Watermelon Wonderland Each Year

Nothing says “summer” like delicious, refreshing watermelon. Biting into a juicy slice on a hot day is one of life’s simple pleasures. This cool festival in Whately combines delectable watermelon with world-class music. Better yet, it’s not just a one-day event. Nope – this festival spans weeks!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
