High temperatures Saturday afternoon didn’t stop an estimated 3,500 people from attending the annual Ridgeway Cantaloupe Festival to help benefit the small community’s historical society and volunteer fire department. Tommy Tucker, a volunteer at the Ridgeway Fire Department and president of the Ridgeway Historical Society, was one of the lead people running the festival on Saturday and was happy with the turnout.
