It is no secret that Picklesburgh is filled with dill-ightful pickled treats, but we aren't just talking about pickles on sandwiches and different flavors of pickles. Picklesburgh was voted No. 1 specialty festival in America for a reason, and it could have to do with the vendors' level of commitment to make the best pickle creations!
To get you prepared, “See and Be Seen” put together a list of the most shocking pickle combos for the true pickle-hearted Pittsburghers out there.
