Garlic Fest celebrates 10 years in Delray

By Rachel Leigh email

DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The best stinkin' party is going on this weekend in Delray Beach.

"This is our 10th annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest where we're a fundraiser for 15 non profits in the community."

Garlic Fest Founder Nancy Stewart says, last year, the weekend long event raised $250,000 for non profits.

A lot of money, but who can resist: "We have our signature dish which is our flaming shrimp scampi. We have everything from stuffed portabellas to garlic pizzas to even garlic ice cream."

A bit odd, but they sell out of the garlic ice cream every year. You have your choice of raspberry garlic creme brulee and garlic chocolata.

Between chow downs, make sure you don't miss the laundry list of performers which include Andy Childs, Delray's Amber Leigh and Los Lonely Boys.

And right before the Los Lonely Boys come on stage at 8:15 Saturday night, pop an Altoid: "We're going to try to break the Guinness Book of World Records by having the largest smooch out."

If you're a bit nervous about kissing your Valentine's Date, they've set up an International Beer and Wine Garden. "You will be able to order wine by the bottle and imported beers from there."

As always, Mr. Garlic will be out and about taking photos along with his garlic family - Mr. Little Garlic and Baby Garlic Bud.

Just follow your nose to downtown Delray Beach for the Garlic Fest. Admission is free Sunday as they celebrate their 10th year of making your breath smell fabulous.
