PawPaw Festival

Do you know what a PawPaw is?

Nope. It is not a type of dog. It is a fruit. This fruit even has its own festival.


This 10 year old festival serves all things PawPaw. Attendance has quickly grown to over 10,000. This year, the festival was held in Athens County on Sept. 13, 14 and 15th.

The American Red Cross of Southeastern Ohio was at the event. During the event, a first aid station was provided. Volunteers of the chapter not only provided first aid but used the opportunity to talk to festival goers about the Red Cross and its role in the community.

Pictured is the Red Cross first aid station at the festival.
