2nd Annual WaterColors transforms watermelon buses

2nd Annual WaterColors transforms...

LAUREL, Del. - The community came together for the 2nd Annual WaterColors event.

Two watermelon buses have been completely transformed.

Participants were able to paint on them. These buses are used to transport watermelons from the field to the farmers' market, hence why they call them watermelon buses.

The art work is meant to reflect Laurel's culture and heritage. One bus features Laurel as a center for agricultural and the other showcases the area's natural resources.

47 ABC even caught up with the 2017 Watermelon Queen, who was able to be apart of all the fun.

Connor Vincent tells 47 ABC, "It's awesome because this is actually my hometown, so it's not very often that we get to do something in my hometown so being able to be apart of something historic in my hometown is just really cool."

Officials say the goal of the event is to leave a legacy that is shared by the community.
