The gigantic catsup bottle that hovers over Collinsville is getting a face-lift this week as a crew applies a new coat of paint to the 60-year-old advertising marquee. The landmark was last painted 14 years ago.

The bottle is being primed in time for the 11th annual World's Largest Catsup Bottle Festival taking place in Collinsville July 12.
