Forestburg holds first-ever Melon Festival, Saturday

Posted: Updated:

"Small town, big melons" is the slogan for the small, unincorporated community of Forestburg as it promoted its first-ever Melon Festival.

It may have less than 100 people but anyone in the area would say melons there are out of this world. The event was held, Saturday, on the town's old baseball field drawing people from all over the area in Sanborn County.

Money raised will be used to fix up roads in the area.

The event features free slices of watermelon, a car show, ATV mud run, a dance and what's a melon festival without a melon eating contest.

Special thanks to members of the Forestburg community and event organizers for sharing these photos.
