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 3rd, 10th, and 17th, 10 stores and 5 restaurants 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.
