102nd annual De Leon Peach and Melon Festival

De Leon Peach and Melon Festival 

Located in Comanche County about 100 miles southwest of Fort Worth, De Leon celebrates its agricultural heritage and bountiful fruit crop with the 102nd annual Peach and Melon Festival (August 2-6). A tractor pull and competitions for peach desserts, melons, and seed-spitting reflect the farming theme, while attractions like a carnival, Watermelon Crawl 5k run, parade, and pageant round out the week. On “Golden Saturday” (August 6, 2016), the town serves a spaghetti lunch at De Leon High and free watermelon slices downtown.
