People in Warrick County took advantage of the beautiful day at the County Fair in Boonville.

One of the most popular attractions: the Watermelon Eating and Seed Spitting Contest. The prize goes to whoever can chomp down their melon the fastest and spit the seed the farthest.

It was a family friendly event that attracted a few dozen kids including this year's "Little Miss Warrick County."

"A minute ago we were doing the watermelon contest and one girl," said Jenna Smith, "she yumped it down."

Several more contests will be held through out the week including a frog jumping contest and a bubble gum blowing contest. The fair runs until the end of the week.
