As most of you may know by now, the Luling Watermelon Thump Association’s Board of Directors made the very
difficult decision in early May to cancel the 2020 Luling Watermelon Thump festival.
Thankfully, there are certain “Thump” traditions that we can still participate in while staying safe. We ARE going to
continue growing melons to celebrate the festival we love, honor the growers, and promote the Luling watermelon
market just how Herman Allen planned in 1954 when proposed the idea of a celebration that we now call Thump!
The Lil’ Growers Committee is excited to team up with Apple Lumber and be able to provide each child that registered
on March 7, 2020 a t-shirt. Apple Lumber is graciously allowing us to pass out t-shirts outside their store on June 20,
2020 from 9am-11am. Citizens State Bank of Luling and Capital Farm Credit are helping to sponsor the awards for this
year’s winners:
The REVISED rules for the 2020 Lil’ Growers Competition are as follows:
1. Jubilee watermelons are the ONLY type of watermelons allowed entry and participant must only use the seeds
given at registration. Only the registered contestants will be eligible to win prizes.
