Giant Watermelon - Missing?

Watermelon no longer exists! Unless it has been moved to another location, it is no longer on Hwy. 367, nor anywhere in the vicinity!

[Mike, 08/16/2009]

The photo from 10 years ago (!) shows it on a trailer, so there's a good chance it has migrated.

Giant Watermelon

I came across in June. It was next to the advertised produce stand. Obviously at one time, it was most likely a parade float. But it's still pretty cool.

[Tracie Price, 07/31/1999]

The watermelon is 25-ft. long, lacquered over a steel frame, created for the town's annual parade.
