July 10, 2018 - Luke Brown Watermelons and Wiggins Farms are sponsoring the Texas Watermelon Queen and the National Watermelon Queen who will be visiting royalty for the 2018 What-A-Melon Festival - July 12th, 13th, and 14th.
Savannah Christensen, previously the 2017 Florida Watermelon Queen is the new 2018 National Watermelon Queen. She travels all over the United States, as well as Canada, promoting the production and consumption of the happiest, and tastiest fruit in the world, watermelon! Miss Christensen said, "There is no place I would rather be on July 12-14 than the 2018 East Texas What-A-Melon festival. I'm so excited to see what fun activities are in store for families and friends!"
Hannah Crisp, the 2018 Texas Watermelon Queen, will also be attending the festival. Miss Crisp gave a history of her journey to becoming the Texas Watermelon Queen, "I am currently a senior nursing student at East Texas Baptist University pursuing a career in pediatric oncology. Recently I was honored with the opportunity of representing the Texas Watermelon Association throughout the year traveling all over Texas, some out of state, and even out of the country promoting the sales of watermelons and the watermelon industry. I was crowned in November of 2017 at the Texas Watermelon Association Convention in McAllen. Most recently I have gotten to attend the Viva Fresh Produce Expo, go on a farm tour, attend the Alamo Watermelon Festival, and many other events. I am looking forward to my next event at the East Texas What-a-melon festival to share my love of watermelons and promoting the Texas watermelon industry."
Wiggins Farms and Luke Brown Watermelons are proud to sponsor these two ladies attending the What-A-Melon Festival and invite everyone to give a friendly East Texas 'Howdy' to them as they attend all the festival activities.
