Pet Show at What-A-Melon Festival


July 6, 2017 - Come out and sign your favorite pet up for the What-A-Melon Festival pet show which starts at 6pm Friday, July 7 under the big tent on the downtown Center Square. Pet sign-up starts at 5:30pm.
Celebrity emcee for the pet show is Tenaha resident Jeff "CryptoHulk" Stewart, a wildlife expert and Cryptozoologist. An encounter when he was 15-years-old with something in the woods led Stewart to cryptozoology, which he describes as the study of undiscovered and undocumented animals. He goes out looking for animal species that have yet to be scientifically proven.
Appearances include Monsters and Mysteries in America, Survivorman Bigfoot and Finding Bigfoot while Jeff also has been featured on over 100 podcasts and is a regular guest on Moore Outdoors with Chester Moore on KLVI AM radio in Beaumont Tx. Jeff spends most days in the river bottoms of Eastern Texas investigating the strange weird tales which come from every corner of East Texas.
Pets of all kinds are welcome. Dress them up in watermelon attire to help them win the hearts of the judges. No large farm animals please. Pet owners are responsible for controlling and cleaning up after their pets.
