Gallagher joining Vincennes watermelon drop

VINCENNES — The watermelon-smashing comedian Gallagher is set to entertain the New Year’s Eve crowd in a southwestern Indiana city just before it rings in 2014 with a 14-melon drop.

Organizers of the Vincennes Watermelon Drop say Gallagher will perform a full show Tuesday evening at Lincoln High School’s auditorium, then do a scaled-version soon before the downtown melon drop at midnight.

Event coordinator Rick Linenburg tells the Vincennes Sun-Commercial that music and performances begin at 9 p.m. and will include a Gallagher look-alike contest.

The city’s watermelon drop debuted in 2008 and pays homage to Knox County’s many melon farms.
