Iconic ‘Weinermobile’ bringing smiles to community members

The Oscar Meyer branded vehicle made stops at area assisted living faciliites

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – An iconic vehicle has people in our area saying ‘hot dog’!

The Oscar Meyer ‘Weinermobile’ is making stops at assisted living communities in La Crosse.

The visiting ‘Hotdoogers’ partnered with Meals on Wheels to help deliver meals in the community.

The visit is similar to the original focus of the giant hot dog.

“Doing it during COVID is kind of a blessing in disguise, because the Weinermobile was created in 1936 at the peak of the great depression for the same exact mission: just to let people smile,” said Hotdogger Ashley Ferrara.

If you missed the ‘Weinermobile’ Thursday, it will still be around La Crosse Friday as crews work to bring smiles to the community.
