The 33rd Annual Gilroy Garlic Festival began today. I am probably one of a handful who can claim to having attended at least 30 of the festivals and working most of those.
This year was kind of bittersweet for me as I had planned last year to "retire" from working at the festival but got roped into another year ( at least for 2 of the 3 days) BUT it is kind of cool because my bestie Joleen is here and attending her very first Garlic Festival. Fortunately she is a good sport and a garlic lover and helped out working today.
We got out of the booth a couple of times in search of yummy garlicky treats and crafts. Here is a silly shot Joleen caught of me. Ugh BAD Hair day. It was fin to show Joleen around and I am looking forward to seeing her views of the festival through her lens. (I being the lame-o that I am forgot my camera in the booth) Also, Joleen will be guest blogging her adventures as a "festal virgin" over on our company blog which you can read HERE (check tomorrow). Be sure to leave her a comment in support!! and keep your eyes peeled for lots more pix coming soon...
Tomorrow is a JAM PACKED day off from festival duties and then we're back at it Sunday where I plan to try to get her to eat something a bit more "interesting" ;)
