We’re about to kill some watermelons at the 34th annual Watermelon Festival, the biggest Carytown throw down of the year. There will be throngs of vendors, a diverse crowd and live music aplenty Sunday, Aug. 13, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with many of the merchants in on the action, including Nacho Mama’s, Weezie’s Kitchen and Babe’s of Carytown. The latter will have live music from the Atkinsons and Altered Takes out back in the sand — wear a white T-shirt and you may end up looking like you just went to a Gwar show. And yes, any reason to shut Carytown off to car traffic is a good one. Maybe they should consider having a big Thursday evening farmers market for a few hours — just a thought. But for this weekend, we repeat: watermelons. facebook.com/carytownwatermelonfestival.
