Mairin steps away from the Pittsburgh Irish Festival tent serving bacon, cheese and hotdog pickles to talk about the staples at the Irish Festival in September like geneology, crafting and great Irish food as well as new options like axe throwing and a visit from the Pukas. Plus, expect the pickle at the Irish Festival!

18:27 Leigh White

As soon as the PDP began the festivities on Friday, a crowd of folks stormed the bridge to get a taste of Picklesburgh, an estimated 75K pickleheads that is. While Leigh proudly owns the pickle frenzy, she explains that it is not a trend since many downtown restaurants serve the pickle in unique ways year round.
