29th Annual Parker County Peach Festival Next Saturday July 13 In Weatherford Texas
The Parker County Peach Festival is one of the biggest and best festivals I've attended anywhere.
A lot of effort goes in to this one day festival that runs from 8am til 5pm.
Children 12 and under pay no admission fee, while those older than 12 pay $5. You can save a dollar by getting your tickets in advance at the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce.
If I remember correctly the last time I attended the Parker County Peach Festival was the 2nd Saturday in July of 2004.
I read somewhere recently that this year's crop of Parker County Peaches is not a bumper crop. Bad weather woes wreaked havoc with the peaches.
This year's Parker County Peach Festival Poster promises LOTS of Peachy Treats. Previous visits those Peachy Treats have been items like Peach Julep, Peach Cobbler, Peach Ice Cream and other Peachy things I am not remembering.
I hope with this year's not too productive Parker County Peach Crop that the Parker County Peach Festival does not have to resort to using imported peaches to make those promised LOTS of Peachy Treats.
