Kid’s Cooking Competition New to Soda Festival Entertainment on April 5
SEBRING, Fla. (March 15, 2019) – Get ready for a soda-licious showdown! The sodas are getting iced down for the Second Annual Sebring Soda Festival on April 5-6, but the competition is heating up. The fizziest festival in all of Florida will kick off in historic downtown Sebring on Friday, April 5 with a Rockin’ 50s Block Party from 5-8 PM. Free to attend for a time of old-fashioned family fun, the block party will feature live performances by The MoonRays, games, shopping, and the newest addition – a kid’s cooking competition – The Soda-licious Showdown!
The Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency and the Highlands County 4-H have teamed up to host a kid’s cooking competition, The Soda-licious Showdown, to add a little friendly fizzy competition amongst our local kid chefs during Friday night’s block party on April 5. Check in time will be from 4-5 PM with the actual competition starting at 6PM.
The competition is free to join, and open to kids ages 5-18 who want to try their hand at crafting a prize winning protein, side dish or dessert that features soda as a secret ingredient. The age groups will be broken down into four divisions for the competition – Cloverbuds (ages 5-7), Juniors (ages 8-10), Intermediates (ages 11-13), and Seniors (ages 14-18). The aspiring soda chefs will submit three servings of their fizzy fare to be critiqued by our celebrity panel of judges on their appearance, taste, and display. Kids can submit up to one cola creation in each category for their age group, and each category will be judged and awarded by age group. On top of bragging rights, each winner will receive a gift certificate to Sebring Soda and Ice Cream Works, and a trophy.
Registration for the competition opens Friday, March 15 and runs through Thursday, April 4 at 5 pm. For complete details on the competition and to register, search for ‘The Soda-licious Showdown’ on the Eventbrite website, or use the following link: The Soda-Licious Showdown
