New to the Fair this year, you can sign up to take part in a watermelon eating contest! There will be three separate divisions: celebrity, junior (10-17), and adult (18+). Each contestant will be given TWO (2) minutes to eat his or her way through the entire thing.

This juicy event will take place on Friday, July 28th on the Dakota Talent Stage with registration beginning at 5:30 pm and competition starting at 6 pm. Pre-registration is encouraged, as both the adult and junior rounds will only have 12 competitors each! Guardian signature needed for contestants under 18 years old.
