The Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce really hit it out of the ball park this time. The Chamber held their Annual Taste of the Region at the fabulous Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, September 28th.

This community highlight features the area’s best commerce, cuisine and culture with over 80 business exhibits and almost 30 of the finest gourmet restaurants participating this year.

Raffle items were donated by the majority of vendors, giving attendees two chances ~ the first at 5:30pm and the second at 7:00pm to win some fabulous prizes. Cerritos College and Fran Newman entertained guests via the main lobby stage and the performing arts fountain.

“I think this was one of the biggest, and the best event that we have ever had,” said Chamber Executive Director Scott Smith, “This is one of those rare events that can really be a win, win, win.”

Admission to the Taste was a mere ten dollars for a wristband that allowed unlimited, all-access to food and beverage samples, business exhibits, auto displays, live entertainment, raffle opportunities and free parking.
