The breeze held a pleasant aroma after the Niagara Lavender Festival on July 7th-8th. Attendees enjoyed a tranquil afternoon of roaming the lavender fields, arts & crafts, and touring the distillery. There were plenty of fragrant lavender foods to taste; such as lavender ice cream, lavender lemonade and even lavender pizza. Guests learned how to grow and incorporate the tricky ingredient in their own culinary ventures. The profits of the post-festival’s harvest were all donated to charity, made possible by sponsors such as Neob Niagra. This aromatic festival was a visit to soothe the soul.
