LakeWorth Garlic Festival

This is the Presidents weekend.  Just down the track via Tri Rail is the Coconut Grove Arts Festival one of the largest in the country and vis-a-vis is the  South Florida Garlic Fest now in Lake Worth.  Tri Rail services both, could for this one day or two suspend tickets and ferry both communities to each others event.  In Lake Worth very large buses picked up Garlic Fest goers from  our Tri Rail station to shuttle stops along John Prince Park lots, and  directly from the campus  next door.

Our Lake Worth Volunteers were welcome ambassadors in their Green Garlic shirts .  Such a nice welcome and as always  we in Lake Worth bring out the best in our community.  Tabitha a new Resident seen here with Mel and  Mark  were welcoming faces on the shuttle bus in.  This was a well-coordinated Festival they had previously operated  for 17 years in DelRay.  Not their new home is John Prince park .  The photos tell the rest .
