Over a dozen craft vendors will also appear at Garlic Fest.
Perhaps the biggest draw is the Bocce Bash, which will consist of teams of four people competing in a Bocce tournament. For those unfamiliar with the sport, Bocce is a cross between skeeball, bowling and shuffleboard. Teams can sign up on the Planned2Give website. Participating in Bocce Bash will cost $40 per team.
Those who wish to participate in the Garlic-Eating Contest can sign up on the Planned2Give website. Participation in the contest will cost $10 per person.
