Watermelon Thump

Luling, TX 78648

830-875-3214

In 1954, Hermon Allen, principal of the Luling Elementary School, proposed the idea of a celebration to honor the growers and promote the Luling watermelon market. A contest was held to name the event and the winner was a young man from Luling High School, Mr. Carol Ferguson. From that time, the Thump has been held the last Thursday through Sunday in June. We are proudly celebrating our 67th anniversary this year on June 25th-28th, 2020.
