August 2022 Queen Update

Hope everyone had a safe and prosperous Watermelon Season!

These past few months Queen Amber and I have been on the road promoting Florida Watermelons in many locations in the state of Florida with Publix Grocery Stores to kick off

Memorial Day weekend. During these months Queen Amber visited many watermelon farmers in Central Florida and in the Panhandle areas.

We have also attended various watermelon festivals this summer. Congratulations to all the winners at the festivals! This summer we had a Watermelon Day at the Ronald McDonald House in St. Petersburg and all the families who attended enjoyed eating a slice of “Fresh from Florida Watermelons.” The kids enjoyed playing games, decorating, and of course, watermelon!

If you know of anyone interested in becoming our 2023 Florida Watermelon Queen please let me know! They can email me at or call me (863) 633-8306. I’ll be more than happy to get one to them as they are going out.

We hope to see you all at our 54th Annual Florida Watermelon Convention in November!
