Foodies are flocking to Gilroy, California this weekend for the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival. With cooking demonstrations, celebuchef cook-offs, arts and crafts and even a crowned Miss Gilroy Garlic festival queen, it's a must-see event for food lovers--but not necessarily a wise choice for first dates.

Proceeds from the Gilroy Garlic Festival go to local charities and nonprofit groups.
