Garlic lovers came in droves to Highwood’s ever popular Garlic Fest held Aug. 14 at the community’s Everts Park to sample creative ways to use garlic in ordinary food like ice cream, cakes, sauces, pastas, meats, breads and a host of other culinary delights.

Garlic aficionados came early to taste the variety of foodstuffs as there were at least 30 different vendors offering their special dishes made with the ancient seasoning including chocolate chip cookies.
