SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Wienermobile is steadily advancing toward Springfield for a “meat” and greet with residents, according to a pun-stuffed press release.

The Queen City hasn’t been graced by Oscar Mayer’s hot dog car in a year — but the wait will soon be over. The famed advertisement vehicle will be in Springfield and the surrounding area from Thursday to Sunday.

For those not in the know, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is a 27-foot-long hot dog on wheels — a rolling advertisement from the meat product purveyor, piloted by “Hotdoggers” with food-focused names such as Benny Buns and Ketchup Kaitlyn. Last year, Hotdogger Zach ‘N Cheese was a part of the crew, but they appear to not be visiting Springfield during this tour.
