In addition, Nese will unveil the revolutionary, do-it-yourself Galco’s Soda Creation Station where there are literally a million possible soda combinations. A first for the soda pop market, the Creation Station invites soda lovers to choose a mixture of flavors, add carbonation strength, mix and then cap and label a 12 oz. bottle.

This year’s soda sampling selections will feature a whopping 23 soda brands from all over the world. Being unveiled at the Summer Soda Tasting is the newest flavor in Galco’s White Rose line of soda pop: Cherry! (portion of the proceeds of sales of all White Rose sodas throughout the year support our work).

Soda samplings at press time include:

• Bundaberg sodas from Australia
• Texas’ popular Hippo sodas
• Brownie Root Beer
• Pennsylvania Dutch Birch Beer
• MacFuddy Pepper Elixer

In between soda tastings, guests can enjoy a variety of entertainment featuring local talent including:

• Don Preston and Bunk Gardner from the Mothers of Invention (Frank Zappa)
• Singing sensation 15-year-old Genesee Hall
• Fly By Night Blues Band lead by Greger Walnum
• The Mele ‘Ohana Ukulele Group
