You are invited to the New Year’s Eve Pickle Drop, held at the Corner of Cucumber & Vine in Mount Olive on December 31.

Watch a glowing, three-foot pickle descend down the Mt. Olive Pickle Company flagpole and into a perfectly preserved redwood pickle tank at the stroke of 7 o’clock midnight. (When it’s 7 p.m. EST, it’s midnight GMT, which means we are official, we should “Happy New Year!” and we are home in bed long before midnight.)

Live music by The Harmony Boys begins at 5:30 this year. Enjoy free hot chocolate, cookies, and Mt. Olive Pickles. Bring a donation for the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina for a chance to receive a door prize. See the list of most needed items.

Get here early: the whole thing’s over at 7:05.
