The more than 20,000 attendees of the 22nd-annual Palomino Fest translated into a $25,000 donation to Southwest Texas Junior College for student scholarships.

The multi-day concert series, carnival and professional rodeo event held at the Uvalde County Fairplex ran from last Thursday to Sunday and provided a variety of music and entertainment.
