Wienermobile comes to Spokane | Events
The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is traveling across the U.S. and is stopping in Spokane this week. Hotdoggers invite you to join them for a look inside the Wienermobile and take home an iconic Wiener Whistle.
Hannah Carlson and Michael Tierney are two of 12 recent college graduates selected to drive Wienermobiles across the country for one year after college. Almost six months into their journey, Hannah and Michael have visited 24 states. Hannah said she was driven to apply for the Hotdogger program by the absurdity of driving a giant hot dog around.
“There’s only going to be a few instances where I can drive around in a hot dog and have it be acceptable,” said Hannah.
The Wienermobile was first introduced in 1936 and was designed by Oscar Mayer’s nephew Carl G. Mayer. Over the years it’s seen many reincarnations with the designs changing with the times. This year, there are six Wienermobiles out on the road. The Hotdogger program was launched in 1988.
Hannah and Michael will be showing off the Wienermobile and handing out Wiener Whistles, stickers and coupons at several locations around town this week. You can catch up the Wienermobile at the following locations:
