Do you like water melons? Well, after a week at the Water Melon Festival in Chinchilla, Australia, you might not like them so much!
Chinchilla is the water melon capital of Australia and produces an amazing number of melons. This is because the ground here is excellent for growing them. It holds water well and this is really important for growing melons.
Every two years in the middle of February the people of Chinchilla hold a special festival and participants come from far away. A visit to the festival is very entertaining! If you go this year, you’ll see a crazy competition where people smash melons with their heads! There are easier competitions too such as melon throwing and melon skiing (where you put your feet in a melon and get pulled along by a rope!). Of course there are cooking competitions for meals using melons and a lot of melon eating too.
The festival started in 1994 and is getting bigger each year. If you want to go to the festival in Chinchilla, you must book your ticket soon. This year they are expecting between six and seven thousand people. That’s a lot of water melons!
