Petra Nielsen, of Manly Meadows Organics in Grand Forks, was doing a good business selling different varieties of whole garlic bulbs. She also had freshly made cheddar cheese flavoured with -- you guessed it -- garlic. Hers was one of the booths at Hester Creek's fifth annual Garlic Festival on Saturday. (Richard McGuire photo)

Many people turned out at Hester Creek on Saturday for the fifth annual Garlic Festival, but with that much garlic around, there were no vampires anywhere near.

Guests strolled around the booths sampling and buying garlic in all forms and varieties — from bulbs to jellies to pickles and relish.

Aiden Mayes and Mandy Cole were back this year to provide acoustic music and songs and of course there was a chance to try some of the Hester Creek wine blends. (Richard McGuire photos)
