There will be more than 100 varieties of seltzer to sample, with the event running in two sessions, from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. A $29 ticket gets you unlimited seltzer samplings. Which means staying hydrated and having a sober ride home will be important things to consider. You could go the VIP route which is always a good option for $49 a ticket that gives you early access, entry to a VIP lounge, a "surprise cocktail," sweet and savory treats and a full 12-oz seltzer can.

"Hard seltzers sales have 'spiked' over the past year, and they’re not slowing down,” said Kate Levenstien, CEO of Cannonball Production, which is producing the event.

I think this event seems like a really fun time. I do love the hard seltzers. Not only are they refreshing but they also make me feel less bloated than beer does. I can’t wait to try out all the different varieties at this festival. Time to call up my girlfriends and let them know the news. I think they will be equally excited as me.
