Hampton County Watermelon Festival

Since 1939, Hampton County has hosted a week long celebration of the watermelon with a watermelon-eating contest, a 5K run and a street dance featuring beach music. Join the state's oldest continuing festival for an action-packed week of athletic events, parades, snappy bands, colorful floats, arts and crafts, food, beauty queens, mud runs and plenty of free watermelon.
