If you like watermelon, get your taste buds ready for an entire week of sampling some fantastic creations from Safety Harbor restaurants and bars during WatermelonWeek Saturday through July 5
For WatermelonWeek, which is part of the promotion for the Melons for Moolah Watermelon Festival at Safety Harbor Waterfront Park on July 6, local establishments were asked to create a watermelon-inspired dish, drink or dessert and pledge a portion of each sale to the Safety Harbor Public Library Foundation’s 20/20 Vision Campaign, which has a goal of raising $500,000 to furnish the soon-to-be-built second story on the Safety Harbor Public Library.
After sampling the creations, you’ll be able to vote for your favorites on Melons for Moolah’s Facebook page, with the winning establishments awarded an advertising package from WatermelonWeek’s sponsor, Safety Harbor Connect.
And for some added fun, don’t miss the WatermelonWeek Pub & Restaurant Crawl on July 3. The event starts at 5 p.m. at Crooked Thumb Brewery, which is bringing back its Lose My Rind beer brewed for last year’s successful Melons for Moolah Guinness World Record attempt. From there, crawlers can design their own path, choosing to visit as many of the 18 participating establishments as they like the rest of the night, including Safety Harbor Galleria, which will be serving watermelon lemonade for donations for the Library Foundation, and Aeire Lane, which is donating $10 to the Foundation from anyone who makes a watermelon door hanger craft in its studio throughout WatermelonWeek.
