WHAT: UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital will bring dill-light to its nursery and celebrate Picklesburgh by costuming newborns as their mother’s favorite pregnancy craving: pickles. UPMC Magee babies will be swaddled in green blankets and caps, knitted by a UPMC Magee nurse, and pickle balloons will float in the air. 


The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership produces Picklesburgh, the award-winning summer specialty food festival. This year the festival is doubling in size and is being held July 26 to 28 on Pittsburgh’s iconic Roberto Clemente Bridge and Ft. Duquesne Blvd.


WHY: With Picklesburgh right around the corner, families are relishing their time at Magee before heading home with their newest family member. UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital has a long tradition of providing families with festive nursery celebrations.
