The Rush Springs Watermelon Festival is an annual event celebrating the rush of local seasonal watermelons with watermelon-themed activities, carnival rides and family friendly entertainment. The Rush Springs Watermelon Festival has been an annual event since 1948, and has grown to over 20,000 festival-goers each year! The event will feature a seed-spitting contest, an arts and craft fair featuring over 100 vendors, carnival rides, live entertainment, stage shows, on-site food vendors and a classic automotive show. Rush Springs, OK has a tight knit and welcoming community. The town is best known for their Watermelon Festival and considers itself the Watermelon Capital of the World. During the Great Depression, a Civilian Conservation Corps project was initiated on the east side of Rush Springs to provide employment and improve the region. Young men were paid to construct terraces and ponds and to restore vegetation by replanting trees. #TravelOK #onlyinokshow #Oklahoma #MadeinOklahoma #oklaproud #podcast #okherewego #traveloklahoma #rushsrpings #watermelon #festival #chickasawcountry
