Watermelon Festival


The Franklin County Watermelon Festival, Russellville, Alabama, Friday, August 15.


Watermelon royalty.


Lots of watermelon to enjoy.


Best steak sandwich ever.





Estimation of the crowd: between four and five hundred thousand. Just guessing.












Rewind.


Kerry Gilbert, KGB.  Ask him about the hat.


Wayne Walker, KGB.


Mitchell Curtis, KGB


Cains Trio.

The watermelon festival continues today with a car show this morning, arts and crafts, and watermelon contests. There is music throughout the day, including Sammy Kershaw tonight at eight.
