The stinking rose festival!
Fight your way through traffic as 250,000+ people visit this town (a day) of 50,000 residents. Get your garlic on!
That's right, the best garlic bread, garlic pasta, garlic art, garlic toys, garlic ice cream (a little nasty), hot weather and beer!
A great festival I enjoyed every year.
Spend the day (with sunscreen) with a beer, listening to music and eating some great food.
Fun for the whole family. Best times were when we would volunteer to pour beer. Fun locals and cheesey women (and men) who were always trying to get one free. (I never did, unless she was hot).
The best shopping ever
This is where my shopaholic tendencies all came out and I just had no willpower to overcome them... So many shops, so many stuff, not enough time and not enough $$.
Thinking of Gilroy really makes me want to go back to the US.
Being there during fall helped, because the colors of the trees are just so pretty.
Well, Gilroy is my hometown. I was born in Sacramento and I've spent a considerable amount of time in Sacramento throughout my whole life but Gilroy is still the place I am in most of the time. Gilroy sucks in many ways but in some ways it is a good place. It all depends on what "floats your boat". I'll most likely add more later but this will due for now.
