Couple to be wed at Gilroy Garlic Festival

For the love of garlic

GILROY—Love is in the air.
The 37th annual Gilroy Garlic Festival will be extra special for one couple, who will cap off the three-day festival with a garlic-themed wedding ceremony at 4 p.m. July 26.
The winners, selected through a social media contest, will have their wedding presided over by longtime Festival volunteer Gerry Foisy, better known as Mr. Garlic. They will be given garlic-themed boutonnieres and bouquets and have their first dance on the Amphitheater stage. The couple will also receive a honeymoon package valued at over $5,000, which includes a one-year supply of Christopher Ranch garlic. 
For those not exchanging vows during the Festival, there’s still plenty to do. Visitors can enjoy a plethora of garlic-infused food, watch the flame-ups at Gourmet Alley, live entertainment and cooking competitions, and more.
The Garlic Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 24-26 at Christmas Hill Park in Gilroy.
