today’s holiday: Watermelon-Eating and Seed-Spitting Contest

Watermelon-Eating and Seed-Spitting Contest

The only event of its kind sanctioned by the United States Department of Agriculture, the Watermelon-Eating and Seed-Spitting Contest in Pardeeville, Wisconsin, is attended by up to 9,000 people. Rules for the spitting contest are strictly enforced: professional tobacco spitters are not eligible; denture wearers must abide by the judge’s decision if their teeth go further than the seed; and no one is allowed to propel their seeds through a pipe or tube. The festival also includes a watermelon volleyball competition, carving contests, and a parade. More… Discuss
