Catsup Bottle and building demoliton.

World's Largest Catsup Bottle

The Catsup Bottle site is undergoing some big changes. The new owner (Mississippi River Construction Co.) is razing -- instead of restoring -- the original factory buildings, some of which date to the 1890s. The demolition is taking place to create a parking lot.

The World's Largest Catsup Bottle will be spared. The new owner says it loves the Catsup Bottle, and that the changes will help bring the property back to life.

Use GPS to find if coming into town on I-55. You cannot access the bottle [directly], but there are two close industrial parking lots which provide a good view.

Drove up here from Chain of Rocks bridge. Nice little town and a good spot on the side of the road to pull over for photos. Wouldn't make a trip just to see this, but if you are in the area...

World's Largest Catsup Bottle - Summerfest

The World's Largest Catsup Bottle continues its successful summer festival with its upcoming 8th annual Summerfest. This year, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will be on hand to present its "Sing a Jingle...Be a Star" contest (We had the good fortune to drive a Wienermobile to the base of the Catsup Bottle many years ago, in the early days of giant condiment and food attraction convergence).

Summerfest also features a catsup taste test, music, crafts, food, even Erika Nelson's "World's Largest Things" Traveling Museum.

The festival is Sunday, July 9th, 2006 -- more info at
