This year makes 65 years that Pageland has been hosting the Watermelon Festival.
I work at a store in downtown Pageland. Being on the main street, I get to interact with a lot of foot traffic during the festival. I also serve on the Chamber of Commerce board, which sponsors the festival.
As always, new faces come into the store. This year, I asked a few of the new faces on Saturday, the last day of the festival, how they enjoyed everything?
