Go ahead, kick a melon … or eat one
|Melon soccer, anyone?|
The City Market, 20 E. 5th Street, hosts a Melon Festival tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the regular vendors offering melons “in all sizes, shapes, flavors and colors” according to the City Market’s spokesperson Stephanie Spatz-Ornburn.
The scheduled activities include melon bowling (from 10-11 a.m.) and melon soccer — from 11 a.m. to noon — a seed-spitting competition, sampling of fresh melons (provided by the University of Missouri Extension, which will have melon recipes too), art activities using melons and Mother Nature telling stories.
“We will also be collecting perishable and non-perishable donations for Harvesters,” said Spatz-Ornburn.
