Cornwall Ontario — The First Annual Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival took place Sunday at Lamoureux Park. Local garlic producers, farmers, artisans, and community organizations united together in Lamoureux Park to celebrate everything in the region that helps people and communities grow.
There were free family and community friendly activities including garlic cooking and gardening demonstrations, an Iron Man obstacle course for teams and families, an apple pie baking contest, a corn roast, face painting, artists’ corner, and live musical entertainment.
All proceeds from this festival went towards Green Thumbs Project, a new initiative launching in the spring of 2016 for children and adults with developmental disabilities.
