The annual Brownstown Melonfest merged past traditions with new ways to celebrate Jackson County’s famous melon crop.
People gathered around the courthouse square Friday, Saturday and Sunday for activities, food, live musical entertainment and, of course, watermelon.
The Jackson County History Center and Pioneer Village also was open.
This year marked the 45th anniversary of the festival, which serves as both a homecoming for former and current residents of Brownstown and as an event to attract people from surrounding communities.
