Join Luling during the last full weekend in June for the Watermelon Thump,
a festival of “Texas sized” proportions. This community of 5,600 grows to 50,000+ during the 4 day festival. At this event you will find unique foods, carnival, outstanding music and performers (under the Thump Pavilion as well and throughout the festival grounds), a parade, and Arts and Crafts vendors. Don’t forget the contests unlike any you will find in Texas. Seed spitting and team seed spitting, watermelon eating contest, champion melon growing contest, and the crowning of the Luling Watermelon Thump Queen.
