Chin­chilla Melon Fes­ti­val

QantasLink Sprit - - Regional Diary -

Chin­chilla Fe­bru­ary 16-19 mel­on­ If you thought wa­ter­mel­ons were just for eat­ing, pre­pare to be amazed. At Chin­chilla, you’ll see melon head­wear, melon skis and melon-toss­ing com­pe­ti­tions. There’s also a melon char­iot race, melon tug of war (op­po­site) and, of course, melon-eat­ing con­tests. The ex­treme sport of split­ting mel­ons open with your head no longer fea­tures at the fes­ti­val but for those who are cu­ri­ous, the record stands at 47 in one minute.
