I always thought the way to cut a watermelon was down the middle. Then, you have two halves you can cut into smaller slices and share with family and friends. The guy in this amazing video cuts each end off the melon first, then cuts off the rind and chops it into small pieces in 30 seconds. Amazing.

Check it out, along with a few Louisiana watermelon festivals.

This year's Louisiana Watermelon Festival is July 25 - 27 in Farmerville, Louisiana.

The Saline, Louisiana Watermelon Festival is in southeastern Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

They grow giant watermelons in Hope, Arkansas during the Hope Watermelon Festival. Barbara Bright Jones holds the world's title for heaviest melon, weighing in at 262.6 pounds.
