The Tiny South Dakota Town That Transforms Into A Watermelon Wonderland Each Year

Watermelon lovers, unite! This town in South Dakota might be extremely small, but this annual watermelon festival in August is full of flavor. It’s filled with free watermelon, watermelon-themed activities, music, food, family entertainment, and even a car show. Head on out to Forestburg this summer and eat all of the melon you can handle.
