Here comes the Wienermobile!

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will stop in Kent Nov. 23 at TOP Food & Drug, 26015 104th Ave. S.E. Visitors can come see the giant hot dog-on-a-bun vehicle from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. that day in the store parking lot. Wienermobile staff will give out free Oscar Mayer Wienerwhistles during the event.

The current Wienermobile, built in 2004, is 27 feet long and 11 feet high, and weighs 14,000 pounds, the equivalent of 1 million hot dogs. The first Wienermobile was built in 1936 and cruised the streets of Chicago. Since then, Wienermobiles have traveled throughout the United States and visited Canada, Japan, Puerto Rico and Spain.
