Saddle up your horse and put away your gold mining tools; it's time to go to town. Show off your best western duds, meet neighbors and share a brew or two with friends. If you are savvy enough, you may even win a competition or two, and secure bragging rights for the year — Sarsaparilla Roundup bragging rights, that is.
At this year's fourth annual Sarsaparilla Roundup, participants can try their hand at sliding mugs of the Old West's famous beverage sarsaparilla, flinging bottle caps, pinning labels on the bottle, ring tossing, bowling for sarsaparilla, participating at a spelling bee, and for those who don't want to waste the abundance of sarsaparilla bubbles, you can use them to enhance your chances of winning the belching contest — yes, ladies, you are invited to participate, too. Winners of the belching contest will receive a T-shirt and bottles of sarsaparilla from the Columbia Soda Works.
