...thousands of people in attendance honoring a single vegetable sounded like a joke to me at first. Three years later, I can't wait for Pickle Day to come and secretly do consider signing up for the home pickle competition, as my practice runs are getting better and better. (Don't tell anyone, but I wouldn't mind receiving an email with your pickle secrets ;-) )This years Pickle Day is happening on October 4th, 12-5PM, as always on Orchard Street, between Delancey and Houston, showcasing Lower East Side picklers, restaurants, face painters and many more.
