The "Watermelon-A-Matic" is a precision watermelon slicing machine that produces near perfect 5/8" thick slices, 40 per minute, all day long. We're told it is the only one in existence. Now feeding thousands at the 49th Annual Watermelon Festival in Sunland through 10:30 pm Sunday night. The Watermelon is free, admission is only $2. Live music, food from everywhere, rides, and Americana at it's finest. We even ran into City Controller Wendy Greuel at the festival today, her arms literally loaded down with toys won by her son at the arcade. Councilman Paul Krekorian was there Friday night to crown the Watermelon Queen.
