When people think of summer in the south they think of three things: ice cream, iced tea, and watermelons. Watermelons are a summertime staple and the main attraction of the annual Watermelon Festival in Thomaston. This year’s festival will be on Saturday, June 24 and will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. The festival will be held at 21461 Range Street.
