"Those who read the Hot Rod Hot Line Newsletter on a regular basis may remember a report I filed a couple weeks ago about the Luling Watermelon Festival. Well, you might know that Texas, big as it is, would have 2 different Watermelon Festivals. This past weekend, was the festival in McDade, Texas, and it was a dandy! Saturday started off with a parade, including some of the cars from the show, through downtown McDade. Let me tell you, it don't take long for a parade through McDade! Back at the Festival grounds, the car show grew until there were were around 80 fine rides in attendance, including cars from the Rockport Hot Rodders and the Central Texas Hot Rodders. The cars were exceptional, the food was great and the people were very nice. I'm looking forward to this one next year."
