Waterloo celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Dandelion Festival this weekend. The original festival was started to protest the use of pesticides for cosmetic reasons, and to bring attention to the usefulness of the common dandelion. 

There was something for everyone at the 20th anniversary of the Dandelion Festival in Waterloo, Ontario. Dandelion food was served including icecream, wraps, drinks, sausage and more... as well as a rowdy jam session and family fun. Take a look at some of the highlights!
