A birthday and a big announcement in one eastern city Wednesday.
Inventor of Pepsi-Cola Caleb Bradham turned 142 years-old today.
The celebration at New Bern's birthplace of Pepsi was all part of an announcement that the downtown store and partner Minges Bottling Group will be the official sponsors for the Bear City's Jubilee Weekend next September.
The event is a staple for the city's 300th birthday celebration next year.
Minges Bottling Group will give 150 thousand dollars to the city's 300th anniversary committee for the event.
