Taste of Parker County logo

More than 500 hungry patrons attended the ninth annual Taste of Parker County last week and helped the Weatherford College Foundation raise approximately $20,000 to support the students of WC.

“We can’t thank our vendors, sponsors and patrons enough for sticking with us last Thursday,” said Brent Baker, Executive Director of the Foundation. The event was postponed for a week due to inclement weather.

“We ended up with 518 patrons, setting another record,” he continued. “Everyone had a great time for a great cause.”

This years’ Taste of Parker County Awards went to the following businesses:
