If you’ve ever dreamed of getting a photo in front of the famous Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, you’re in luck. The literal hot dog on wheels will be in town August 18-21, 2022.
The Wiernermobile is 85-years-old so it’s more than likely you’ve heard of this American icon, if you’d like to describe the mobile hot dog as such. At every event, fans of the 27-foot headturner will be able to take photos of and with the Wiernermobile, peek inside, and even better, receive an honorary Hotdogger name and iconic Wiener Whistle.
If you are a collector of unique items, you’ll be pleased to know that it is only when you see the famous Wienermobile in person can you obtain the mini hot dog on wheels. Fun fact: the Wienermobile does not sell or distribute hot dogs. Sorry to disappoint!
There is no cost to attend the events where the Wienermobile will be stationed and as the press release sent to us aptly said when encouraging people to come, that this event “could be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.” Quite the high bar to clear but then again, this the Wienermobile.
