The Pickle Dude

A Dude Among Dill

The Pickle Dude® first appeared at the 2013 World's Only St. Paddy's Pickle Parade & Palooza®. Since then, this 6-foot-tall dancing gherkin and his signature yellow Converse high-top tennis shoes have danced, zip-lined and posed for thousands of photographs to promote his favorite festival and his hometown of Mansfield, the Pickle Capital of Texas®.
