In Celebration of Garlic

garlicWent to a Garlic Festival today in Chehalis, Washington, a bustling rural community adjacent to its sister city, Centralia. For some years it used to be held on a private farm residence, but it moved to the Southwest Washington Fairgrounds, Lewis County, a few years ago. This has turned out to be a good move, as it attracts more vendors and buyers alike. If you live in the region, fear not! You have one more day, Sunday, to partake in celebration of garlic in all its forms. How about garlic ice-cream? Or, pickled garlic? Garlic popcorn? Garlic and bacon caramel apples? I tried the garlic frosted, chocolate brownies. Not bad. But, the real favorite is garlic fries. Yummy! Stock up on your favorite garlic seasonings, soup mixes, jams, and non-garlic home-made goodies, as well. The festival is not just about food, but home crafts and antiques, too. There’s something for everybody! Yes, even garlic beer and wine!

I found this very cool, colorful, souvenir t-shirt that I just couldn’t resist. It even sports Mount Rainier in the background!

    Wow..pickled garlic…sniff..

  3. I’d say that’s peculiar, but I know of a small town that does a cranberry festival.
