McDade Watermelon Queens Revue & Entry Application

It's fun to be queen! It is also one of our most dedicated rolls. Our queens represent the McDade Watermelon Festival at about 20 surrounding town parades. We have won several trophies for our float, and we congratulate all the wonderful work the girls & their parents do to decorate our float and share it with other parades in the central Texas area. Their busiest months are June, Sept & October. We encourage all our local young ladies who are interested in running for the title of 2022 McDade Watermelon Festival Queen to sign up now! You could be a Watermelon Queen and earn scholarship benefits.

There are 3 queen places: Tiny Tot (ages 3-8)

                                         Junior  (ages 9-12)
