LANDMARK PARK'S WATERMELON SAMPLING SET SATURDAY
DOTHAN, Ala. -- Landmark Park will celebrate National Watermelon Month Saturday as it holds a "harvest and sampling" from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., at the 100-acre historical and natural science park.
The watermelon harvest, which will feature such varieties as Moon and Stars, Black Diamond, Charleston Gray, Crimson Sweet and Jubilee, is part of the monthly farm programs held at the park just off U.S. 431 North on the fourth Saturday of every month except October and December.
Other topics tentatively scheduled for the year are syrup cooking, stripping fodder, blacksmithing, soap making, hearth cooking, clothes washing, chair caning and peanut stacking.
Registration is required. The programs are free with paid gate admission, which is $4 for adults and $3 for kids. The Farm Programs are co-sponsored by the Alabama Agricultural Museum.
