What is a Pickle Run, you ask? The old wives tale goes like this...an old grocer in uptown Galion had bales of rotten pickles that needed to be disposed of. So what did he do? He tossed them into a creek behind his store, of course! All of the men got a laugh out of watching the Pickles Run!
The Pickle Run Festival originally began in the late 70's as a fundraiser for the Galion Booster Club. The festival continued until the late 90's when the festival planners decided it had run its course. A small group of citizens decided to resurrect the festival in 2015 and have been at it ever since.
We look forward to incorporating new groups every year in to the festival. If you belong to a group or organization that would like to get involved, please contact us today!
