Happy Watermelon Day! This fun August silly holiday is dedicated to one of summertime’s favorite fruits – the watermelon. Watermelon day is no small holiday. Silly and quirky as it may be, Watermelon day is celebrated with events in unexpected places. And it’s not just people who love to celebrate watermelon day – animals are big fans of this sweet pink fruit on a rind! Cats, dogs, bears, pigs, cows and other animals all have a sweet tooth for watermelon.
The Durham, North Carolina Museum of Life and Science is celebrating watermelon day by serving delicious watermelon pops to the animals there. You can even watch bears swim for whole watermelons. Just part of a few activities there on this day.
