This post is for Ms. W’s Blogging challenge 2. For the blogging challenge this week is ” About your place “, so that is what I am going to tell you about today. I live in the U.S in the state of Kansas. There is NOT very big cities in Kansas. I live in a small town. We have a festival in our town, it is called The Watermelon Festival. This is a little bit about what its like and how it started. It began when watermelons grew on the sandy river bottom ( there is a river near by our town ). Lots of people come to our town on Labor Day, that is when our festival is. We do all different kinds of things. We have a parade, BBQ’s, demolition derby, games, contests, and my favorite part is you get to have all the watermelon you want at the end of the day! A long time ago maybe when I was in 1st grade I got to go in a float with my brother Thomas and my dad. I have a picture of it ( the pic. with a red lawn mower and dad driving and me a Thomas in the back. ) and a few others. Here is a contest, you grow watermelons and the person who grows the largest wins! I also have a picture of the float for the largest watermelon.
Now remember these pictures were 2009. Anyways, During the parade people walk and give out different things, like candy, Balloons stuffed animals! All kinds of different things. In 2011 I won this contest, I will tell you a bout it. Everybody wears the same t-shirt to the watermelon festival, You get a chance to draw a picture to put on the t-shirt, send it in and see if you won. Well this year I did!!
My dad had won before too. Now let’s get back to the post ” What it’s like where I live ” .Like I said It’s very small and quite. Just the way I like it. I would rather live in a small town other then a big noisy town. What would you rather live in? During the summer I love to go to the pool and play baseball. During the Winter I play in the snow ( That is if we get any ). I play basketball too. It get’s VERY hot in the summer and PRETTY cold in the winter. I don’t have much more to say about where I live so BYE! Sciencegirlem aka Emily 😀
