If you haven't had your fill of watermelon yet this summer, you're in luck. The 52nd annual Lions Club Watermelon Festival, takes place this weekend, growing out of its digs in Sunland and planting itself at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. In addition to free slices of watermelon, there are watermelon carving contests (we imagine more than a few will be of roses, like above), watermelon eating contests, watermelon snacks and drinks, plus live entertainment, fair food and more. Tickets are available at the gate: $10 per person, $5 for kids 12 and under. No Gallaghers, please.
