Watermelon Days, World's Largest Watermelon

The watermelon is now being stored under a carport next to the Powell Museum off of UT 19 - can't miss it. It is on a trailer and has silver streamers hanging off the back.

Watermelon Days, World's Largest Watermelon

Just took the business loop through town. Spotted the watermelon on the north side of the road on the east part of town. Still looks good.

Since it's on a trailer, the watermelon has been known to get around Green River....

Giant Watermelon - At events only

The "world's largest watermelon" in Green River, Utah cannot be found. We drove up and down the main street of Green River numerous times (It only took about 2 minutes to traverse the entire street) and could not find it. We stopped at a local store and spoke to two older female residents. We were told the melon is now regulated to making public appearances during the annual watermelon days parade in August. They didn't even know where it was stored.
