At least when Lonnie Gibson was mayor of arbyrd he had a watermelon festival. The mayor they have now don't do anything he don't know him but he looks like he's about 16 yrs old.

Ya when Lonnie Gibson was mayor of arbyrd we had a watermelon festivel every year. The mayor we have now don't do anything he looks like he might be 18 yrs old or so. Wish we could get Lonnie back that would be a blessing from above.

Wonder if those two brothers are still around, and still bringing in the watermelons to sell? Those two might make you a good deal on loading up a truckload of those giant watermelons on their farm. Seriously. Those two guys were good people, and goo workers. Honest people.

I think you may be talking about the James Brothers watermelon stand. I believe there are still watermelons sold there but I'm not sure if it's the same people.

There used to be a little watermelon stand on Malone, and each year we drove to Sikeston and bought the best watermelon from the folks that ran that stand. Bootheel has the greatest watermelon in the world. Should patent and market that watermelon seed!
I never ate any good water mellow they were all taste bad
