Puddin' Path Flavors

The main attraction at the festival is always the Puddin' Path, where you sample many different flavors and styles of banana pudding. Each recipe is created and served by friendly people from one of the area's non-profit organizations. Proceeds from each tray go to the non-profits, and there are to-go servings of your favorites available for purchase.
