The iconic Wienermobile is in Dothan.

It arrived from Orlando on Thursday morning.

When the Wienermobile pulled up, it drew a few curious folks.

Since 1936, the iconic vehicle has been hauling buns and fun across the hot dog highway.

For Dorothy Spratlin, driving this Wienermobile is a dream come true.

"The Wienermobile came by at my family Christmas party when I was six. I absolutely fell in love with it and said right then that I was going to drive the Wienermobile when I graduated college," said Spratlin.

Before rolling into town this morning, the vehicle dropped by the National Peanut Festival to tour the nut mobile. While in Dothan, the Oscar Meyer team will be giving away free hot dogs along with other prizes.

"It takes you back to your childhood and the things you used to do when you were little," said Wienermobile fan Dawn Willis. "Like I said, it takes me back to the Maryland state fair because they used to be there every year. It's been a blast, and to get this nice little whistle again…"

"We've got props to take pictures with. We've got coupons, stickers, postcards. So come on out and get your fun stuff and your photo," said Spratlin.

So relish the time spent in or out of the Wienermobile this week.

Spratlin and her teammate arrived in Dothan Thursday as part of a four-day visit to the Wiregrass area. Thursday’s stop occurred at the South Oates Street Food Depot location. It'll visit the chain’s Cherokee Avenue location Friday, the Ashford store Saturday and the East Main Street facility on Sunday.
