Tasting of rare varieties of watermelon was held at the festival. The flesh of “Moon” is yellow and sweet, with exotic notes. The “Orange King” tastes like a pumpkin. And not by chance – during its breeding breeders used this plant.

There were many other treats as well. Slices of ripe watermelon under chocolate and peanuts, canapés with the berry and cream cheese for dessert. Lemonades to refresh – Astrakhan greeted the guests warmly: it was 36 degrees of heat outside.

Snacks were also with watermelon. In one of them, for example, we mixed shrimps, gourds, pineapple and mango-chili sauce. Berry and pepper – bold and very tasty!

One of the attractions was the smoothie generator. You had to pedal on a special bike to make the drink!


Not bull’s-eye, but pulp – at the festival the guests did not play simple darts, but watermelon darts.

The guests of the festival were the winners of a competition held by S7 and Aviasails, as well as journalists and bloggers. They came to Astrakhan by a private flight from Domodedovo airport.


The most courageous of them learnt how to cut flowers on the thick skin of gourds. The master class was difficult, but interesting.

Watermelon Festival

The main event of the festival was already on board the plane when the guests returned from Astrakhan to Moscow. For the first time at an altitude of 11600 meters 108 people tasted the Astrakhan pumpkin (yes, that is the correct name for it). The record was fixed by the representative of the museum “Russian watermelon”.
