Kind of a Big Dill: Scenes From Lower East Side Pickle Day

Kind of a Big Dill: Scenes From Lower East Side Pickle Day

Hundreds came out to a closed-off stretch of Orchard Street on Sunday afternoon to celebrate their love of pickles at this year's annual Lower East Side Pickle Day. From an animated dancing pickle posing with attendees to a home pickling contest (featuring everything from sweet pickles to pickled mango and watermelon) judged by the founders of Ice and Vice, New York's very own Food Baby, and more — a fine, briny time was had by all who think that pickles are just about the best food ever.
