June 6-12 is Florida Watermelon Week, and to celebrate, the 2010 Florida Watermelon Queen is coming to Tallahassee to serve fresh Florida watermelon! Shelley Allen of Marianna was crowned in March at the Annual Florida Watermelon Convention and now travels around Florida promoting the industry.
Come get free Florida watermelon slices, participate in our seed spitting contest and meet Shelley on Wednesday, June 9 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. outside of the Florida Capitol beside the “Stormsong” statue (dolphin fountain). Public parking is available across the street at Kleman Plaza. The seed spitting contest is at noon, and there will be prizes for the top spitters!
