Branded as the “Garlic Olympics of Gas-

Festival features many new additions this year.

4 p.m. on Sunday, June 16, at the Port of the Penin-

New fl avors and vendors
If it’s a new fl avor you seek, check out Colum-
bia Black Garlic from the The Dalles, Ore. They are
a new vendor this year, and they’re offering a garlic
with a sweet, mild fl avor.
“There are two grocery stores in Ocean Park and
they are well-stocked with garlic during the festi-
val,” said Bonnie Cozby, director of Ocean Park
Area Chamber of Commerce. “This may be your
only chance to see elephant garlic.”
Visitors can look forward to more food options,
Cozby said.
There will be garlic fries and garlic fudge. If
you aren’t sure about trying out garlic, consider
chocolate-dipped fruit kabobs with optional garlic
There will also be garlic décor for sale, including
garlic bird houses and wind chimes, pottery and art.
