The Watermelon Festival is the eighth mission of Gelato Beach in Super Mario Sunshine. The episode's objective is to bring the largest watermelon to the Surf Cabana.

Layout[edit]

The Watermelon Festival is a competition to see who can grow or bring the largest watermelon to the Surf Cabana. Three contestants are lined up waiting for the competition to start, though in order for the player to win the Shine Sprite, they need to bring the largest watermelon in the level. The largest watermelon can be found at the top of the beach, in the plaza area. The player needs to simply run into it in order to roll it, though the player needs to be careful when moving it, as putting too much pressure on the watermelon will cause it to pop and respawn back at the plaza. Additionally, Cataquacks patrol the beach and will send the watermelon flying if they come into contact with it. Defeating them by using Dune Buds or Ground Pounds when they are stunned will make moving the watermelon to the Surf Cabana easier. Once the watermelon is at the pier, the player needs to carefully push it across so it doesn't land in the water, which will also cause it to respawn. By bringing the watermelon to the cabana owner, the player will be rewarded with the Shine Sprite.
