Watermelon Fest

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - Folks got a chance to cool off Saturday with a summer staple.

The watermelon fest happened Saturday morning at the Wichita Falls Farmer's Market.

People could get their hands on free samples of the sweet treat of all different colors and sizes.

There was also watermelon seed spitting contests.

"It is fun because you get to meet a lot of nice people and the watermelon is great," said the winner of the kid's division for the seed spitting contest.  "I won last year so it kind of means a lot to me to win this year too."

The watermelon fest is one of the biggest events at the farmer's market.
