The 82nd festival is one of the biggest events in the area and draws people from far and wide. There are watermelons aplenty at the festival, and these East Texas melons are as sweet as they come. The festival holds one of the biggest parades in northeastern Texas, and has a street dance, craft booths, entertainment, a fully sanctioned PRCA rodeo, an antique car show, corn hole, horse shoes, food, and wine-a-ritas.
