Dillsburg, Pennsylvania: Pickle Man StatueAn old tree stump has been carved into a Dillsburg welcome mascot -- a humanoid larger-than-life pickle with top hat, on top of a barrel. It's true - Dillsburg drops a giant pickle every New Year's Eve.
Visitor Tips and News About Pickle Man Statue
Pickle Man is an old peanut painted green, in the home of the original dill pickle![Anthony B, 04/09/2012]
He does resemble a rogue Mr. Peanut a bit. While any connection to Dillsburg or its founder, Matthew Dill, to the invention of the dill pickle is coincidental, the town does drop a festive giant pickle each New's Years Eve.

Hey, a big wooden pickle man. He's standing outside, along the street.[Steve, 02/06/2011]
Pickle Man, apparently carved in place from an old tree stump, is wacky, yet courtly enough to tip his top hat to newcomers. He also grasps a walking stick, as if just returned from the Pennsylvania wilderness to his homey Dillsburg barrel.
