Tradition has it that an ornamental pickle is placed on a Christmas tree as one of the Christmas decorations. On Christmas morning, the first person to find the pickle on the tree receives an extra present from Santa Claus or would have a year of good fortune!

On Thursday, December 2nd, 9th, and 16th, and 23rd,  7 stores, 3 restaurants and The Grand in Downtown Ellsworth will hide ornamental pickles in their stores on Thursday evenings from 4 to close. If you find one, you'll receive a special gift or great discount.

You can find the pickle in the following stores

  • Bliss - 93 Main Street
  • Toko - 120 Main Street
  • Union River Book and Toy - 100 Main Street
  • Elizabeth's - 124 Main Street
