So, we live in a tiny little town outside of Gainesville, Florida. (Take note, stalkers.) Up until now we haven’t been very good at participating in our little small-town community events, but we are starting to get out there some. One of the big events in our town is the annual Watermelon Festival. We were actually in town this year for it so I thought it would be fun to go.
Of course, that meant that I needed to make little watermelon outfits for the girls.
I made the Oliver + S popover sundress for Esther…
and a simple skirt for Dinah.
I just used red and green broadcloth I had in my stash and I trimmed it with white piping.
And finally I added the appliquéd watermelon seeds.
We had a great time eating watermelon…
riding carnival rides…
and riding ponies.
It was fun to get out in our community and see all the fun events. When the girls get older we can enter them into fun things like the watermelon roll, seed spitting and watermelon eating contests.
I think they would have a shot.
What fun events take place in your community? Do you manage get out and enjoy them?
