Wake up and smell the vinegar, because the annual Lower East Side Pickle Day is almost here. Residents can once again relish in the briny festivities this Sunday; festivities that are now re-established after the Hurricane Sandy-induced hiatus back in 2012.

This year, Orchard Street between Houston and Delancey Streets will, as in years prior, showcase more than fifteen local picklers, alongside 30+ restaurateurs who will serve up “pickle themed delicacies.” In addition to games, music and such, there will also be pickle trivia for the aficionado, a home pickling contest (mason jars at the ready), and a clairvoyant who will profess your pickle future. Is a sour outlook in this case a good thing? Only time will tell.

LES Pickle Day is happening on Sunday, October 4, from 12-5pm. Check out the full list of vendors below.
