Garlic provides a powerful punch with its aromatic, flavorful cooking properties and its many health benefits. Entire books have been devoted to garlic, but if you want a hands-on, interactive experience, plan to attend the second annual Midwest Garlic Festival at Terrapin Park in Elizabeth, IL the weekend of August 13-14. Activities begin at 10:00 a.m. both days and continue until 9:00 p.m. Saturday and 4:00 p.m. Sunday.
