It's What-a-melon Time

by Jessica Cervantez

If you're looking for something to do you might want to head out to Center. That is where the What-a-melon festival is happening.

People come to Center from miles around for the food, the entertainment, and, of course, the watermelon.

The weekend is packed-full of events. Vendors from as far away as Mississippi are in town for the festival.

The pet contest begins on Friday at 7:00 p.m. There will be a beauty pageant on Saturday, and, of course, the event everyone is waiting for, the watermelon contest.
