|The Garlic festival - always popular, |
even when it's not on
The pageant has been a source of controversy at it is now being held only every other year causing some to complain that it should not be advertised as an annual event.
Mayor Tom Shovel defends the practice as not being untruthful as the Garlic Festival continues to be an annual event.
"The Annual Garlic Festival beauty pageant is an important part of the Newchurch economy despite it now being held only every other year."
