Annual Chipley Watermelon Festival

This Saturday all roads across the tri-states' will lead to Chipley, Florida.

The 51st Annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival will be held with a variety of activities, and of course plenty of free slices of watermelon.

The big parade kicks-off at ten in the morning in the downtown district.

Festivities then move to the Washington County Agriculture Center on U.S. 90 where they'll be a variety of events, including the melon contest and auction beginning one in the afternoon.

With the dry, drought conditions, farmers say these are some of the sweetest melons they've ever tasted.
