Quimby's Watermelon Days held June 27-28

Monday, July 7, 2008

As always, the Quimby Watermelon Days Children's Parade on Friday was a popular event. The theme for this year's parade was "Disney Characters," a subject that attracted a lot of neat costumes. Among the standouts were sisters Cassady as the Little Mermaid and Kennadie Lytle as Sleeping Beauty.
Entering the Watermelon Days Children's Parade as Little Bo Beep, young Clare Haselhoff had no problem winning first place in the preschool division of the contest. The lamb wrangler is seen in this photo with her mom Andrea.
This year's Quimby Watermelon Days celebration was plagued by some weather woes on Saturday evening, June 28th, as a rain squall passed through town. Luckily, the rain was soon over and the sky (complete with rainbow,) was clear by the time volunteers were ready to start serving watermelon. Photos by Ron Flewelling.

Of course you can't have a good Quimby Watermelon Days celebration without plenty of ice cold watermelon. This year, the volunteers really had to keep their knives humming to keep up with the hungry crowd on hand for the event.
