Watermelon Day is celebrated on August 3 each year. On this unofficial holiday for one of the world’s healthiest and most flavorful summer treats, thousands of Americans make watermelon ice cream, sorbets, or just eat it plain to commemorate the large green fruit while beating the oppressive August temperatures.

Watermelons, one of the most versatile fruits, are perfect for serving on any occasion, from weddings and black-tie affairs to casual summer picnics with your loved ones. Watermelon is about 92% water, and enjoying one on a hot summer day reduces your risk of dehydration and overheating.

Botanists and historians trace the watermelon’s origins back to South Africa. Desert-dwelling tribes have been cultivating it for centuries, using the fleshy center and thick rind for local dishes.

How to Celebrate Watermelon Day

Because Watermelon Day falls in the middle of summer, carnival and fair organizers usually incorporate it into their games and programs. You can:

· Organize a watermelon seed-spitting contest
· Cook, bake, or freeze watermelon dishes to share with loved ones
· Create new watermelon-infused drinks to serve at your home bar

If you want to learn something new, study how to grow and harvest your watermelons so you can celebrate #WatermelonDay next year with homegrown produce.
