Pawpaw Festival 2018

Pawpaw Festival

Mark and I attended the Pawpaw Festival a few weeks ago. How could we not go to an event that promised a contest for the tastiest pawpaw variety, a demonstration of pawpaw cookery, and food trucks each with a pawpaw item on the menu?

Unfortunately, the day was unseasonably hot (in the 90s!), the event was crazy well attended (thousands of people), and I just couldn't hack the combination. Maybe next year we'll go on Friday instead of Saturday...or maybe I'll just try to talk the library into making an information-packed pawpaw event for those of us who enjoy data more than festivities.

Yes a friend and I camped out at the pawpaw fest some years ago and had a great time, but you are correct, it can be a very busy place on the weekend. I might consider going next year but I don't think Mary would be willing to camp out.
