Watermelon Festival

July 1st, 2023

Welcome to the juiciest event all summer, the Watermelon Festival at Lucky Ladd Farms! Get ready to dive into a refreshing and fun-filled day that will satisfy both your cravings for excitement and delicious farm raised watermelon.

Crawl on down to Lucky Ladd's farm, where the sun is shining, and the watermelons are ripe for the taking. As you arrive, we'll greet you with a mouthwatering treat—a FREE slice of juicy, vine-ripened watermelon to kick off your festival experience in the most refreshing way possible.

But that's just the beginning! Prepare to cool off and make a splash in our epic Splash Zone, where water-soaked adventures await. Jump, slide, and frolic around our Splash Pad, feel the excitement bubble up in the Bubble Blast Pool, and conquer towering inflatable water slides that will have you laughing and sliding all the way to the bottom.

Think you've got what it takes to be crowned the watermelon champion? Put your skills to the test and join the competition in the Watermelon Eating, Seed Spitting, and infamous Watermelon Crawl Contests. You might just walk away with the ultimate prize and some bragging rights to boot! Or just watch and cheer along as contestants compete in hilarious challenges with fierce determination.

But the Watermelon Festival isn't just about friendly competition—it's a day for the whole family to create memories that will last a lifetime. Take a leisurely stroll through the farm, explore our charming attractions, friendly animals, and discover delightful surprises around every corner.
