The sights, the sounds, and, oh yes, the smells of Gourmet Alley once again filled the air of Gilroy this past weekend, and how sweet it was! The Gilroy Garlic Festival was invited by the Gilroy Rodeo to bring Festival favorites like garlic bread, scampi, pepper steak sandwiches, and the new crowd-pleaser, tri-tip garlic fries, to rodeo and food fans alike. The venue may have been different but the joy in feeding fans while giving back to the community is still the same. Thank you to our volunteers, our Festival friends, and the Gilroy Rodeo for a wonderful weekend. It sure felt like home.
