Hampton County Watermelon Festival
P.O. Box 516, Hampton, S.C. 29924
Dear Concession Friend,
These policies have been established for concessions that participate in Festival activities.
Each food concession unit approved for the Festival will be permitted ONE(1) FORTY(40) AMP service hookup to our service pole per vendor. Also, priority will be given to units that are self-contained and cook with bottled gas. However, no bottled or natural gas will be provided by the Festival to concessions. In addition, priority will be given to units, which have their own generator for supplying electric service for their cookers.
During the Festival, the Chief Electrician, Hampton County Public Works Department, will supervise the Festival service pole and concession hookup. Anyone found tampering with the Festival, electrical hookup service, abusing Festival property or violating this policy will be removed from the Festival with no refund of concession fee.
Therefore, if a maximum of FORTY(40) AMPS is unsatisfactory for your unit, perhaps you need to consider gas service or a generator – or nor participating in the Watermelon Festival. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE TO THIS POLICY.
We are required for each food concession to provide the Festival with a copy of their CERTIFICATE OF LIABILITY INSURANCE to participate in the Watermelon Festival.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with these policies. We especially thank you for your support of the Hampton County Watermelon Festival.
