A tiny Bulgarian village is holding its annual watermelon festival, which draws thousands of visitors.
Around 6,000 visitors flock to Sal-ma-novo each year to watch the traditional festival. It brings together people from Bulgaria, Romania and Armenia and other nearby countries.
The festival is unique to Sal-ma-novo, which survives almost exclusively on watermelon production. Local producers are very pleased with the boost to trade and tourism.
Competitions abound, such as the biggest melon and the fastest watermelon eater. Nearly 3-thousand watermelons will be used for fighting, decorating and eating.
The two days of fun, end with the election of a Queen of the Festival.
