Watermelon water tower.

Watermelon Thump and Water Tower

This attraction is just so Texas! Luling (pronounced Loo-Ling) is a small town, and the water tower is only 7 minutes off the highway. Best pictures can be taken behind the police station. The people there were very friendly, and I felt so at home when I was there!

Thump weekend at the water tower.

Watermelon Thump and Water Tower

We couldn't find a closer place to see the tower than the police station. There is a great fair the last weekend of June with tons of rides! Great for kids.
