Some of the samples of Avery's soda to be featured at the upcoming Sebring Soda Festival on April 6-7 on the Sebring Circle include, from left, Bug Barf, Dog Drool, Fungal Fruit, Kitty Piddle and, peeking in from the right, Monster Mucus. Organizers need more volunteers from community organizations to run sampling booths for the 200 soda varieties to get featured at the event, including 30 in the 'Weird Stuff' category, in which Avery's will have 13 varieties.

'Certain tastes, smells and sights bring us back to our childhood, and soda pop is often one of those tastes that brings along fond memories,' states the VisitSebring.com page for the upcoming Sebring Soda Festival. Samples will be served, but the Sebring Area Chamber of Commerce still needs community organization volunteers to run booths, serve samples and, as part of the event, promote their organizations.

SEBRING — Liz Barber has eight nonprofit groups confirmed to staff tasting booths at the upcoming Sebring Soda Festival, April 6-7.

Some of them, like Habitat for Humanity, will work two booths on the Sebring Circle, but not all. Barber would like to get 50 booths covered. The event has 200 varieties of craft soft drinks for visitors to sample and the more booths, the better.
