Opening Ceremony for the Winterville Watermelon Festival

Every year the Winterville Chamber partners with the Town of Winterville to host the Opening Ceremony for the Winterville Watermelon Festival. This year we were unfortunately rained out on Thursday, but we kicked things off right on Friday! Our very own Tony Smart was kind enough to sing the National Anthem for us, then Town Councilwoman Veronica Roberson, Mayor Ricky Hines, Winterville Chamber Director Rebecca Caveness, and Town Councilman Paul Rice assisted in cutting the first official watermelon of the festival!
