The city of Glendale hosted its first Watermelon Festival back in 1949 and this weekend the old-timey tradition - that's been suspended for the last few decades - is back. Catch the melon madness on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Murphy Park in Glendale's historic district. The event will revive many of the traditions from the original event including a beauty pageant to crown a Watermelon Queen, melon eating contests (naturally) and a beer garden. Admission is free. For more information visit the Watermelon Festival website.
