D o you have a dill-lightful voice or relish the idea of singing about pickles? In public? On stage? At the 32nd annual North Carolina Pickle Festival? The Ollie's Anthem pickle song competition is one of the new additions to the festival to be held April 27 to 29 in Mount Olive. Ollie Q. Cumber is the Mt. Olive Pickle Co. mascot. The lyrics to the pickle song are posted on the Pickle Festival website, www.ncpicklefest.org, and the festival Facebook page. While visiting the Facebook page people also can check out all of the other events that will be going on during the festival that is sponsored by the Mount Olive Area Chamber of Commerce. The contest has no age limitations, however contestants under age 18 needed parental consent. The grand prize will be $350 cash and a year's supply of Mt. Olive Pickle Co. products. The runner-up will receive $100 cash. By entering this contest, the contestant transfered to the N.C. Pickle Festival all rights to their song, including the right to copy, edit, broadcast, publish, create derivative works and use — in whole or in part — any entry in any manner and in any media without further consideration and without limita- tion. Video submissions were made to http://www.ncpickle- fest.org/video-contest-submission. There is also a link on the festival website at www.ncpickle- fest.org. The top two vote-getters will be asked to perform live at the N.C. Pickle Festival on Saturday, April 28. The third round of voting will be done by audience participa- tion on Saturday, April 28 — the contestant with the loudest audience response will be declared the final winner. The contest will begin at 3:40 p.m. at the Katie Country Main Stage on Center Street. There is nothing like a beautiful ode to the pickle, and this year, the N.C. Pickle Festival has that covered.
