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!
