There s nothing as refreshing as an icy-cold, red, luscious watermelon on a hot day.














That s one of the reasons for the turnout at the recent third annual Neapolis Melon Festival.









Neapolis, located near Grand Rapids, OH, is one of the oldest communities in northwest Oho.










No festival would be complete without some barbecued chicken.
