A watermelon eating contest to preview July 4th fun in Currituck on Coast Live

HAMPTON ROADS, Va - Summertime is here and we have a fun way to celebrate Independence Day - with a festival, live music and fireworks in the Outer Banks.

Our friends from Currituck Travel and Tourism also brought some brave interns to Coast Live for a live preview of the famous watermelon eating contest... and things got a little messy.
