Need something for the kids to do? A fun time that will keep the whole family laughing and create some great memories? Check out the Kitty Hawk Watermelon Festival this Thursday at Jockey’s Ridge Crossing in Nags Head.

This is the 12th Annual Kitty Hawk Kites Watermelon Festival and having attended quite a number of them we can guarantee it will be a great time..

It’s all about watermelon, fun and there’s a little bit of silliness to it as well, but that just adds to the good time.

The classic for the day is the watermelon seed spitting contest. Of course…how could there be a Watermelon Festival without a watermelon seed spitting contest?

The day is really geared around children, so there is face painting, an inflatable waterslide and tie dye T-shirt making. And of course, a watermelon eating contest.

The event is free, but activities and contests do require a ticket. However any money collected goes to a good cause— the Outer Banks Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety Coalition. The Coalition has been working with local communities and government to enhance bicycle safety and awareness.

The festivities kick off at 10 a.m. and keep going until 4 p.m. The weather forecast is looking pretty good for Thursday, so pack up the kids, put a bounce in your step and go spit some watermelon seeds.

So much to do and so little time, so plan another visit to the Outer Banks with Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates.
