The thirteenth annual Garlic Festival is being held this weekend (9/29 & 30, 2001) in Saugerties, NY -- off the Thruway north of Kingston, exit 20, follow signs. I must admit I've never been, but by all accounts, it is the real thing. Garlic ice cream, anyone?
Entertainment, workshops, cooking demos, and lots of food.
Cantine Field, Saugerties, 10-5 pm
$5 admission, children under 12 free
