Montreal & Ottawa - Day 10 - Perth Garlic Festival
13 Aug 2011
We had experienced French culture in Montreal and the government city of Ottawa, so on our final day we headed into more rural Canada. We drove an hour and half to Perth, ON for the Perth Garlic Festival. It was a highlight of the trip. (Granted, I love small town festivals and I love garlic, so how could it not be great?) We tasted garlic cheese curds, garlic fudge, garlic ice cream, garlic sausage, and more. Plus there were demonstrations of garlic braiding, cooking and a talk by one of the most unique and interesting chracters I've ever met.
