Garlic Festival

Celebrating the annual Hills Garlic Festival in New Denver

It was a beautiful day for the 23rd annual Hills Garlic Festival.

Because the festival has become so popular over the years,it had to be moved from its original location in Hills to the larger one in New Denver.

If you were hungry, there was food to be had. Everything from Mexican, to Greek, and, of course, a food truck featuring foods of the garlic variety.

There was face painting and balloon animals. Of you were sitting by the water at the right time, you could see the dragon boat row by.

A wide variety of vendors attended the festival as well. There were garlic and other vegetable vendors, along with those selling jewellery, clothing, pottery, even pressed flowers and metal design work.

A few drops of rain did fall, but it wasn’t enough to keep the crowds away.
