Thats because the city is home to The Worlds Largest Bottle Of Catsup, which is turning 58, and the red hot locals want to sing the condiments praises.
The 170-foot roadside attraction has become the towns beloved landmark and was part of a Brooks Catsup bottling plant where many of the towns residents once worked.
To honor the tasty catsup that has given so much to their town, the locals are hosting the 9th Annual Catsup Bottle Summerfest, where they plan to sing a heartfelt Happy Birthday to the bottle.
Event spokeswoman Judy Demoisy says the festival will feature chefs who will participate in a taste testing contest where theyll have to determine which catsup is truly Brooks Tangy Catsup.
In addition, an artist will be unveiling the worlds smallest catsup bottle to the crowd, but Demoisy insists there will still be plenty of catsup to go around.
Says Demoisy: We love all condiments, but catsup will always have a special place in our hearts.
