Watermelon Festival 2011

Yesterday was the first day of the 2011 Watermelon Festival at Hope. We had a nice shower here in Nashville which cooled things down. I headed over to the fairgrounds at Hope planning to watch the Dixie Melody Boys, a southern gospel group, perform. Turned out they were not singing until this evening. There was this glorious rainbow just before dusk. The colors were bright and you could see the entire arch. I will be back at the Festival tonight to enjoy the Lion's Club fish fry and then to listen to the Dixie Melody Boys.

The Watermelon Festival is great fun. It appears that temperatures are going to be more reasonable - why don't you come on by and enjoy food, entertainment and watermelon (I had a large slice of great melon last night). Here is a link to the website ( so that you can check out the events and the times. Hope to see you there.
