UPDATE:

I attended the North Plains Elephant Garlic Festival last Saturday. The day was perfect. The food was absolutely delicious. There were vendors of garlic, garlic spice blends, garlic sauces, pickled garlics, garlic mustards, etc. You could sample most of the packaged products. I picked up some killer garlic dill deli mustard from Monastery Mustards of Mt. Angel and some jalepeno garlic sauce from a place up in Washington. I indulged in garlic sesame chicken, garlic green beans, garlic mashed potatoes & roasted corn with garlic butter. The coup de gras was the garlic ice cream! It was fantastic!!!

There was lots of live music to entertain you as you dined on your chosen garlic fare. They had a beer garden, an market of local artisans & misc vendors (sort of like Saturday Market), and a kids' play area.

With the Air Show going on in Hillsboro, we were occasionally treated to a fly over by some awesome aircraft, too.

I'm sure the Garlic Festival in Gilroy, CA is huge compared to this one, but it was an enjoyable & satiating way to spend a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Oregon.

Too far for us as we are on the other side of the State. Also too many health issues to be able to go.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

I certainly have heard of it, since I live in Hillsboro and it's just a couple miles north of here. We have never gone, but I've thought it would be fun to see what's going on there. Let me talk about it with my DH and get back to you.

I have never heard of it LOL!

I work fridays and saturdays and am at church on sundays so nope could not go. I have to put in a day off request for anything that goes on on the weekends almost a month ahead of time so they can get a sub for my shift. I am a caregiver so they have to have a replacement for me to take a day off.

Is anyone going to the Elephant Garlic Festival in North Plains, OR this weekend? I plan to go & would love to meet up with other Oregon Sparkers.

Haven't decided whether to go Saturday or Sunday. Check it out at:

Anyone interested?
