Forestburg holds another successful Melon Festival

A large crowd enjoyed the music, activities and great weather on Saturday for the sixth annual Forestburg Watermelon Festival. Marli Baysinger, one of the event’s organizers, stated that this was one of the best crowds the event has drawn.

Forestburg’s annual Melon Festival was held last Saturday, Aug. 18.

Corliss Avenue was paved just before this week’s festival so that attendees were able to see the product of the hard work and generous donations from previous years. With the road complete, entry into this year’s Melon Festival was free, with free will donations accepted. This resulted in reportedly the largest crowd in the festival’s history. Entry will continue to be free in the future.
