Mabuhay Magazine

A watermelon-inspired weekend of fun and games takes over the small country town of Chinchilla.

Helmet on, a young man kicks off his shoes, sinks each foot into a humongous watermelon, grabs a thick rope and prepares for take-off.

The beerfueled crowd cheers as he slips and slides head fi rst through a splatter of sticky, sweet juice like the brave “athletes” before him.
