🍉  Kellogg Watermelon Festival Coronation Sponsors 🍉

The Watermelon Festival Queen’s coronation will be Wednesday, September 8th at the Front Porch in Kellogg. The event is sponsored by the Kellogg Lions Club. They will be serving a delicious homemade meal.

The Kellogg Lions Club is looking for businesses that are interested in being contributing sponsors for the coronation. The contributing sponsorship fee includes two dinner tickets to the banquet. Proceeds from the banquet help with scholarships for the Kellogg ambassador participants as well as cover various parade, float and banquet expenses incurred each year. The Watermelon Fest float typically travels to approximately 15 to 20 area parades in Minnesota and Wisconsin each year. Your past support and generosity are what continue to make this possible.

If you are interested in being a contributing sponsor for the queen’s coronation or if you need dinner tickets, please contact Sue McNallan 651-564-0309. Please leave a detailed message.
