A holiday tradition has returned to Collinsville as the World’s Largest Catsup Bottle is once again adorned with a giant Santa Claus Christmas decoration. The 12 ft tall, 400 lb Santa figure is wrapped in lights and colorful garland and appears to be climbing the landmark water tower to deliver lots of holiday good cheer.

 

“Santa took an extended Caribbean vacation,” said Mike Gassmann, President and CEO of the non-profit World’s Largest Catsup Bottle, Inc. “We’re excited to have him back.”

 

It has been over 10 years since Santa Claus last climbed the Catsup Bottle. “People are loving it! Our social media sites are lit up like a Christmas tree,” Gassmann said. “Pun totally intended.”

 

A lot of elves worked behind the scenes to take care of the big guy. Scott Hassall, Business Manager of IBEW Local 309 in Collinsville took the reigns as project coordinator. J.F. Electric in Edwardsville did the heavy lifting (literally) and got Santa up in place.
