From Release

ark your calendar for the S.C. Pageland Watermelon Festival set for July 18-19.

The two-day agriculture festival, with a history dating back to 1951, is all about the season’s sweetest crop.

If you’ve ever savored a sliver of sweet watermelon on a hot July day while letting the red juice trace rivers down your chin, then you find it as no surprise that one such succulent fruit would be deserving of its own two-day festival.
