🍉 Masterpieces of #watermeloncarving are at the center of the arts & crafts area by the gazebo -- and you can even watch Carl the carver in action!
🍉 Games, games, games for kids and grown-ups!
🍉 Booths from great local shops & organizations, including #SaveDeezNuts, a mid-south men's health nonprofit.
🍉 Watermelon Carnival shirts and merch are sold by the Chamber of Commerce tent by the gazebo -- stop by to get yours and wear it proudly.
The whole carnival is a labor of love from the Water Valley Chamber of Commerce. Thanks to them, the volunteers, and sponsors like @VisitMS, @MSFarmBureau, @CSpire & all the other businesses who make this such a magical weekend for the community.
And remember when it's all over: Water Valley is a magical place EVERY day of the year.
If you haven't been lately, plan to "Shop & Dine Downtown Water Valley" soon. ♥️
