PawPaws and Shrimp

Two of Ohio's hidden local foods are going head to head in festivals on the weekend of September 19-20. The 2009 PawPaw Festival will be held in Albany Ohio.  The fest boasts producers, enthusiasts, and paw paw beer from 10 AM - midnight Saturday and 10 AM - 4 PM Sunday.  Admission is $5 per adult; kids 12 and under are free.

The Ohio Fish and Shrimp Festival will take place in Urbana Ohio.  The fest, held at Freshwater Farms, will be open from 10 AM - 8 PM Saturday and 10 AM - 6 PM Sunday with free admission.  I have heard rumors of the delicious shirmp at this fest for the last few years but never made time to go.  This year we have the perfect excuse - my father's country eastern (i.e. hippie) band Bunty Station is playing at 5 and 7 PM Saturday.
