FLUVANNA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Fluvanna County Fair got started Thursday night at Pleasant Grove Park.

The opening events included home arts, the 4-H rabbit and poultry show and awards, the pep rally, and even a watermelon eating contest.

Lukas Koczan won the contest.

“One of the other competitors, my friend, head-butted the watermelon because he was frustrated," Koczan said. "It was pretty funny and I stopped to take a break and laugh at that one."

Organizers said the fair is a great way to get people together at the end of the summer.

“It is very important to bring the community together and the kids had a great time," said Melissa Kalionksay, a visitor to the fair.

The fair runs through Saturday.
