Crawfish and Cory Morrow raise funds during annual CrawPHish Festival
Presented by BB&T, The Woodlands CrawPHish Festival was held on Saturday, March 25 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Town Green Park in The Woodlands.
The Woodlands CrawPHish Festival was created as a community partnership between the Pulmonary Hypertension Association and The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce. Attendees enjoyed crawfish, BBQ and a variety of refreshments while listening to live music and bands such as Cory Morrow, Zach Coffey, and Zydeco Dots. A designated Kids Zone entertained families with a gigantic crocodile inflatable slide and a variety of activities including a bouncing moonwalk, rock wall, coloring, face painting, cotton candy and more.
Before the event, contestants entered in The Woodlands Crawphish Festival Art Contest where local judges selected the top 3 winners. The winning artwork was printed on the 2017 festival t-shirts and all artwork was displayed on the day of the festival.

Pulmonary hypertension is a simplified name for a complex health problem: high blood pressure in the lungs that can lead to heart failure. Patients with PH often experience shortness of breath with minimal exertion, chronic fatigue, chest pains and fainting. It is a rare and currently incurable, but increasingly treatable, condition that affects both genders and people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. New treatments are extending and enhancing the lives of PH patients and further advancement is on the horizon. For more information, go to: www.PHAssociation.org
