What would Watermelon Carnival be without melons…and water? But, the event could have used less of the latter Friday afternoon when a strong storm moved through just before 3 p.m.
The rain and wind didn’t appear to do a lot of damage, but several vendor tents (bottom photo) were taken down by one or the other.
Some carnival goers didn’t seem to mind the wet. Coley Tayor (left) and her friend Emilee Moser enjoyed splashing around. Emilee’s dog, Buddy, doesn’t look as happy.
The rain is predicted to end and carnival events are still scheduled to continue.
