An Enormous Watermelon. Vincennes, Indiana

In Vincennes, Indiana recently, I found myself with an hour or so to kill. As I wandered around town, you’ll never guess what I found: a truly enormous watermelon!

I went away and did some research. It turns out that the people of Vincennes are fiercly proud of their watermelon crop. This particular watermelon is used in the town’s annual Watermelon Drop, the highlight of a New Year’s Eve party celebrating watermelons! (You can see a video of the 2012 Watermelon Drop here.)

And as if that weren’t enough watermelon for one town, they also have an annual Watermelon Festival every August!

When I met back up with my friends I was, unsurprisingly, craving watermelon.
