Meet Mr. Garlic aka Gerry Foisy. For 28 years come rain or sunshine you will find him at the annual 3-day Gilroy Garlic Festival. His wife, Jeanne put down his name as a volunteer and ever since then he has continued to play Mr. Garlic dressed in his trademark garlic bulb suit topped with a “Garlicky” hat. We spoke with him and his wife to find out what drew him to the festival and why he continues to volunteer.
The 37th Gilroy Garlic Festival is on July 24-26, 2015. For ticket and information visit their website.
