Hot dog! The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will be making a few stops in Orlando this week! Apparently, the only place suitable for a Wienermobile event in Orlando is Walmart. I guess the Wienermobile's not all natural and organic? (Or maybe Walmarts have the only parking lots big enough to hold the humongous sausage-shaped vehicle?) Driven by Orlando native Kacee con Queso (most likely not her real last name) and her sidekick Sam and Cheese (also probably not his real last name), the Wienermobile will be HQ for family-friendly activities, photo ops and more. Best part is, they'll be handing out wiener whistles!
Kacee Con Queso is super-excited to be making these stops in Orlando, as she grew up here and graduated from Olympia High School in 2009. She beat out more than 1,500 applicants to become one of 12 Hotdoggers, folks who spend one year piloting the 'mobile and spreading the gospel of Oscar Mayer hot dogs to the entire country.
Here's a full schedule of the remaining Orlando events where you can ketchup with Kacee, Sam and the Wienermobile:
