On July 21, 1951, Pageland held the “biggest day in the 40-year history of this fast growing town” – the first Watermelon Festival.
Among the first of firsts for the annual festival were:
◆ Ann Robertson, who was named Miss Watermelon Festival. The week before, she won the local American Legion beauty contest.
◆ Six grand marshals led the parade, all on horseback. B.C. Moore & Sons and A.M. Moore Co. combined to win the float contest. A “snappy Jeep sportster” pulled the float, which featured large butterflies.
