Festival reviving interest in Ridgeway cantaloupes
“It’s been a nice little country fair that is growing and more people enjoy it. People from urban areas come and get a feel for a more rural fair. Ernie Fleming said the Ridgeway Cantaloupe Festival gets bigger every year. Fleming and others from the Ridgeway Historical Society founded the event — now in its ninth year — to preserve the area’s agricultural history. Fleming said the organizers decided it would be a fun opportunity for people who don’t ordinarily attend the fair. The festival, sponsored by the Ridgeway Historical Society and the fire department, begins at 10 a. m. Saturday and lasts until about 4 p. m. There is no admission charge, including for the number of entertainment groups on two stages.
