Picklesburgh will be a two-day celebration on July 17 and 18 on the Rachel Carson Bridge.

Organizers say the huge inflatable Heinz pickle balloon will hover over the festival, overseeing the tastiness!

The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership says the balloon was created by Big Ideas Parade Giants, which is the company that makes many of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons. It was built and airbrushed in Arizona.

It’s larger than 35 feet wide and was modeled after a Pittsburgh icon, the Heinz pickle pin.
