Throw your plans out the window. We scoured the state in search of the top events and offerings, from the Parker County Peach Festival in Weatherford and the Buddy Holly “jukebox musical” in Ingram to watching Mark Cuban play a little ball. Here’s our super select guide to the things you absolutely can’t afford to miss.
Despite the drought, peaches will prevail at the 27 th annual Parker County Peach Festival. “They might not be as large as last year, but they’re plenty good,” said Taylor Hall of the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce, the organization hosting the event. The proof is in the cobbler. Hall said peaches from Hutton Farms, a local orchard that supplies the majority of the festival’s peaches, “were selling like crazy at the farmers’ market last week.” The festival coincides with the beginning of Freestone peach season—good news for bakers who prefer this variety because its pit, or stone, is easy to remove. Fill some reusable sacks with local growers’ various bounties, which will include tomatoes, corn, and watermelon.
