ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

July 4th and watermelons go hand in hand for many south Georgians. Vendors set up all around downtown Albany and other areas in order to sell watermelon and make a little extra money.

July 4th can mean a little boost in sales for those willing to work through the holiday.

William Jackson drove his truck by the police department and found good business on the Fourth.  

"I've had police officers start to work this morning, and they stopped by and bought 10 or 15 apiece. I ain't done too bad. I started at 9 o'clock and it's almost one now and I've sold 200. I ain't done too bad," Jackson said.

The watermelon production in Georgia is catching up after the winter weather delayed the season.
