We kicked off the 42nd Annual Hope Watermelon Festival with a bicycle, tricycle, stroller parade lead by queens. The parade started at Legions Field by the Bancorp South Stage and made its way through the vendors an ended in front of the coliseum.

The queens leading the parade were, Arkansas State Cinderella Woman, Young Miss Relay for Life, Tiny Miss Hempstead County, and Little Miss Watermelon. The queens were followed by those on bicycles, and the walkers behind them. Wally the Watermelon also walked in the parade and will be roaming around the throughout festival.
