Jackson County, Indiana will be having a Watermelon Festival on September 5, 6 and 7, 2014. Jackson County is about an hour and a half drive south of downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. This fun Watermelon Festival should be a pretty drive from Indianapolis and an exciting day trip.

This years Festival should be as much fun as in previous years.
