The 26th annual Hills Garlic Festival was held on Sunday, September 9, 2018, with over 5000 people shopping, eating, visiting with friends, volunteering, vending, and enjoying the entertainment. Over 155 vendors sold a variety of harvest bounty, crafts, and food. Mountain Station and Ojo de Agua provided excellent music on the main stage. Flydini the Magician mystified the crowds at the family entertainment tent. Bubbles the Clown created intriguing balloon sculptures to delight the young and young at heart. Thanks to the Village of New Denver for being excellent hosts and for their assistance when needed.
