COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

A 20-year Metro East tradition is coming to an end.

It was recently announced that the Catsup Bottle Festival in Collinsville will not take place in 2018.

A three-person committee has handled most of the organizing, but when they wanted to hand it over, nobody was interested in the job.

Instead, the committee will focus on smaller events each year to promote the world’s largest catsup bottles, which stands at 170 feet tall.

The bottle has been named to the National Registry of Historic Places.
