The Grindrod Garlic Festival Society hosted its 10th annual delightful event, drawing hundreds of people to Grindrod Park.

The one-day event, of course, featured garlic cooking and eating, garlic cooking demonstrations, garlic, vegetable, herb and photography judging and even garlic poetry.

The photo themes were “Anything Garlic;” “Life on the Farm;” and “Pets and People.”

The first Grindrod Garlic Festival was held Sunday, Aug. 22, 2010. It was organized by members of the Grindrod Recreation Association to use Grindrod Park more, and eventually fundraise toward a new community hall.

The festival’s goal was to highlight what the region has to offer, educate and offer a fun, interactive event for all ages.

Mission accomplished.
