As a child growing up in Union Parish, Josh Meredith didn’t miss many Louisiana Watermelon Festivals.

“I never even had a thought that one day I would be doing this,” Meredith said as he and members of the Farmerville Jaycees get ready for the weekend full of events.

The Jaycees have produced the event “for as long as anyone can remember,” Meredith said. Even though he has only been a member of the club for three years, he has a wealth of experience he can tap into.
