Picklesburgh may still be days away, but the celebrating has already begun at UPMC Magee Women’s Hospital.

The hospital dressed some of its newborns Monday in homemade pickle outfits knitted by a UPMC nurse. The babies also wore onesies that said “special dill-ivery.”

UPMC captioned posted some of the photos on Facebook saying, “The sweetest pickles in #Picklesburgh!”

Officials from the hospital and the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, which hosts Picklesburgh, held an promotional event with the babies Monday.

There was no shortage of pickle puns.

“We’re relishing this special dill-ivery of the newest Lil Gherkins to Picklesburgh,” at Facebook post said.

Picklesburgh, a free festival that celebrates all things pickled, runs from July 26-28 and will be held on the Roberto Clemente Bridge and Fort Duquesne Boulevard between Stanwix and 7th Streets. The festival has doubled in size this year.

The festival was selected as the “Best Specialty Food Festival” earlier this year by USA Today.
