dedicated to garlic
No vampires dared enter Lamoureux Park on August 28. The annual Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival took place amidst hundreds of visitors.
The festival is a celebration of all things local in the heart of Cornwall. Local vendors from the Cornwall and surrounding areas all offered their goods to visitors. From baked sweets to fresh produce, knitted creations and of course garlic, several different things were available.
This event is not only a fun, educational, and, of course, delicious event, but it also goes a long way to helping the community. A portion of funds from the event goes towards assisting the Green Thumbs Project, an initiative that creates agricultural opportunities to groups and individuals to be engaged and earning an income to empower the community.
