World's Largest Carved Watermelon Centerpiece Sept. 2010
Chef Daniel Bartlett conceived the idea of creating a 16 foot high, carved watermelon centerpiece. Several chefs carved 500 watermelons for many days, the last batch being done at the fair. They are submitting documentation to be considered for a world record!!
We were lucky, it was almost next to our Personalized Rice Necklace booth, so I kept dashing over there to check out their progress.
The pictures speak for themselves!!
The frame was back-filled with watermelons and the spaces filled in with ruffled Kale.
An eggplant with a summer squash.
They constructed it on a Friday and had to take it down on Sunday. I was sad to see it go. Every time I looked at it, I saw something more amazing.
