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.


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.
