“Fresh From Florida” Weekend at Epcot – Florida Watermelon Association
|October 29, 2012||Posted by Melissa under Agriculture, Events, FAPC, Produce|
We were pleased to welcome the Florida Watermelon Association at this year’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. Florida Watermelon Queen Christine Chaloupka was joined by National Watermelon Queen Katelyn Kelley (last year’s Florida Watermelon Queen), and Katie Taylor, the South Carolina Watermelon Queen.
The Queen program is sponsored by the National Watermelon Promotion Board and the young women who are selected to represent the watermelon industry from their respectives states or regions are spokesmen for the industry. They travel around the country touting the health benefits of fresh watermelon.
This was the Florida Watermelon Association’s second year to participate in the festival, and attendees enjoyed learning about the delicious, sweet treat.
