Catsup Bottle Festival

The World's Largest Catsup Bottle Festival — celebrating the Brooks Catsup bottle water tower that looms over Collinsville, Illinois — is an old-fashioned slice of Americana. Ketchup (or catsup if you prefer) is a fundamental part of America, and the festival celebrates it with ketchup tastings, a tater-tots-smothered-in-ketchup eating contest, a hot dog eating contest that also involves copious amounts of ketchup, and the crowning of Little Princess Tomato and Little Sir Catsup. Non-ketchup events include a Cruizin' in Antiques car show, hula hoop competitions, party games and food and drink vendors. The World's Largest Catsup Bottle Festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at Woodland Park (Vandalia Street and Pine Lake Road, Collinsville, Illinois; Admission is free, so bring the kids and have fun.
