Tell ya this much Pastor, I could tell ya some very, VERY hilariously funny and certainly true stories about the Pageland Watermelon Festival back in the late 80's and early 90's!!! And I do mean such from riding in the front seat (I sat in the middle as one fella drove and the other sat at the door - the back was loaded w/ about 20 others!!!) of an early 1900's Fire Truck at 3:30 in the morning, with ALL OF US VERY MUCH UNDER THE INFLUENCE and a Pageland city cop pulling up beside us asking if all was well!!!Watermelon Festival Pageland SC
Sad but true. Heck, legend has it that Lancaster and Great Falls to this day still severely suffer from Springs Industries deciding to "exit stage left" back in the mid to late 90's towards Mexico. Word now is that they're (i.e., Springs Industries) pretty much functioning out somewhere over in the Oriental area kinda near where the pacific and indian oceans meetup!!You could have a Defunct Textile Festival in a lot of towns
I guess you can call it anything you wish........do yourselves a favor and click on the youtube link at the end.I love Poke Sallet (not Polk). But I'm not letting some stranger fix it for me. That's how you get poisoned.
