Description:

Since 1984,   Big bands, jugglers, and folk acts will entertain from 5 outdoor stages sponsored by Capital One. This year’s Carytown Watermelon Festival is an experience no one should forgo; this is the jubilant peak of summer in Richmond. last year, 118,000 people made their way to the celebration, buzzing like bees to the hive. The Shriners sliced through a record number of watermelons, feeding the swarms of visitors almost 3000 juicy melons.   The festival will be just as lively this summer, with expectations of even more attendees than last year. there are nearly 50 performances scheduled and more than one hundred street vendors planning to transform Cary Street into the granddaddy of street festivals. Merchants are already decorating their windows with watermelon motifs, while the real watermelons are ripe for the picking and will soon be given a royal welcome in Carytown.
