Raise your hand if you survived the Pickle Festival? I got there around 2:30 pm and the place was packed with pickle lovers. It took me a while to find the actual pickles, but once I did I was in a for tasty free samples. I ended up buying a jar of bread and butter pickles from the Stretch Pickle vendor. Delicious! I felt a bit claustrophobic at times with the crowds, but over all it was a fun time. With the freak 66 F degree day, it is too bad we couldn't all enjoy the festival in an outdoor venue. Next year, I will try be an early bird and beat the crowds.
