  • Cyclists came from all over the state and beyond to participate in the Tour de Melon, making it a record year for the event with 177 riders. Just over 200 registered for the event, but coordinators believe the threat of rain kept some away.

    The watermelon themed cycling event features family friendly trail rides at 20, 40 and 60 miles long and hard core road routes at 50 and 100 miles. Hosted by the Suwannee Valley Rotary Club, the event is held annually on the first Saturday in June – this year on June 4 – in conjunction with the Chiefland Watermelon Festival.

  • Suwannee Valley Rotary club members, pictured at right at their lunch time meeting last week, are gearing up to host the fifth annual Tour de Melon – watermelon themed bike ride – to be held on June 4 this year beginning at Strickland Park in Chiefland. Proceeds from the event go toward various community outreach programs throughout the year.

    Registration starts at 6:30 a.m. with the ride beginning at 7:30.

  • Held on the first Saturday in June, the Annual Watermelon Festival is perhaps the biggest event in Chiefland during the year, drawing thousands of visitors from all parts of the state. Activites are centered around the city's Trailhead/Old Train Depot Park on U.S. Highway 19/South Main Street.
