Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Last Saturday, LOUA had its Third Annual Pawpaw Festival. This event is always nerve-wracking for me; it’s like having a party at your home, and as the time for the party to start gets closer, you wonder if anyone is going to show up…And each year, I worry for nothing. We had seven vendors and a food truck, and everyone was very happy with how their sales went. And the people! So many people stopped by to buy things, including pawpaw fruit. I’ve never acquired a taste for pawpaw (and to be honest, I don’t like most fruit!), but apparently, it’s quite the thing!

I did enjoy Rambling House’s pawpaw soda…

We also had Perennial Rye Band, who played bluegrass – and Zack Yocum, from the band, brought all the pawpaw fruit (zachlandscaper@yahoo.com)…

So much thanks to our co-sponsors, and all the vendors, and especially, to everyone who stopped by.

Until next time (and next year)!
