During summer it gets very hot in Armenia. The temperature rises above 40°C, people start feeling weak and exhausted. It seems that even water is not powerful enough to beat the heat. This is when Armenians turn to watermelons, a lot of them… A whole festival of them…
The Watermelon Festival will start on 18th of July at 19:00 beside the Swan Lake (intersection of Teryan and Tumanyan streets). It is the second time that such festival is organized in Armenia and is becoming a beloved tradition.
Join in for some contests, refreshing watermelons and, of course, a lot of fun. You can start participating right now by approaching the photographer on the intersection of Teryan and Tumanyan streets near the Arno Babajanyan statue. The photo that reaches most “Likes” on Facebook will receive tourist packages from the City Hall and Arzni Sanatoruim. Do not forget to bring a watermelon with you and get creative.
