Watermelon Crawl


It’s time to do the Watermelon Crawl!
This year’s Crawl is once again presented by our friends
at Bank of the Ozarks.

Volunteers from all over central Arkansas gather to
glean thousands of pounds of watermelon from the fields
at Scott Melons and More. The melons go to food pantries and
other hunger agencies that feed the hungry in our state.

We hope you’ll volunteer and enjoy the games, music, food and, of course,
loads of watermelon!

Volunteers are asked to register at the event.
