Milan Melon Festival 2012

It's not to early to think about the Milan Melon Festival, held as always, on Labor day weekend, September 1-3. The Melon Festival started in 1958 and has been going strong since. The festival is held in the Milan Village Square.

Events include a parade with awards for best color guard, twirler, baton corps, floats and many more; a beautiful baby contest, bands, entertainers, dances, carnival rides, even a "Melon Idol" contest!

Many vendors will be available for your shopping and eating pleasure- don't miss the famous watermelon sherbet and canteloupe (also known as Musk Melon or "mussmelon") ice cream.

So many things to see and do in beautiful Milan, Ohio- if you're staying over for the whole weekend, consider a stay at Angel Welcome Bed and Breakfast.
