World Famous Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Returns to Rockford This Weekend
The iconic vehicle shaped like a hot dog on a bun, called the "Wienermobile", used to promote Oscar Mayer products in the United States is coming to Rockford.
Oh, I Want to Be an Oscar Mayer Wiener
I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin just a few miles from, the now-defunct, Oscar Mayer meat processing plant. This catch little Oscar Meyer wiener song has been around my entire life. I was one of the catchiest jingles on TV. Plus, their hotdogs were a pretty regular part of my summertime childhood diet.
There wasn't a summer of my childhood that didn't include asking my mom if could either get a ride from her or ride my bike, to whatever parking lot they were going to be in.

Blow your whistle, the Oscar Mayer Wienernobile is headed back to Rockford this weekend, Saturday, January 28, and Sunday, January 29th. Actually, it will be in Rockford and in 3 other locations in the area, as well. Stateline Kids dropped the news this week and I couldn't be more excited, it's been years since I've seen one in person, plus I don't need to ask my mom for a ride.
