It was billed as the first annual Lutz Watermelon Festival — and, the sweet juicy melon was a big draw.
There were watermelon-eating contests for kids and adults, a watermelon-catapult contest, and a Little Miss Watermelon pageant.
Other ways to have fun included a large hay bale walk, tire swings, a rock climbing tower and a dunk tank.
Festival-goers could grab a bite to eat from a plethora of food trucks, could do some shopping from local vendors and could enjoy music, too.
The event even had free parking.
The festival was held on June 13, an overcast day, at County Line Produce, 206 Newberger Road in Lutz. It was hosted by County Line Produce Company and Intensity Academy Gourmet & Hot Sauce Company.
