CHAMPAIGN -- Oscar Mayer fans got to relish a special treat Thursday. The Weinermobile made a stop in town. It was parked at County Market on West Kirby most of the day.

People snapped pictures and took home a souvenir whistle. The giant hot dog on wheels has been around since 1936. It's 27' long, 8' wide, 11' tall and seats six!
