The Tiny New York Town That Transforms Into A Watermelon Wonderland Each Year

In New York, it isn’t just the warm weather that makes us anxiously waiting around for summer’s arrival — it’s also the food! Our favorite local farms begin to open up their stands for the year, and we begin to find ourselves uncontrollably drooling over the thought of things like fresh strawberries, peaches, and best of all… watermelon! Turning one tiny town into a total dreamland, mark your calendars and set aside this summer weekend when New York is the host of an amazing watermelon festival.

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. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
