The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile visits the greater New Orleans area from Friday through Sunday, making six stops outside of Walmart stores. You may recall the sausage shuttle stopping in the city for National Hot Dog Day on July 23. Frequent visits to New Orleans from the frank tank are unprecedented. Before July, New Orleans had gone three years without a vienna visit.
The Wienermobile's greater New Orleans schedule follows:
Friday, Sept. 13
11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Chalmette Walmart (8101 W. Judge Perez Drive)
3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Marrero Walmart (4810 Lapalco Blvd.)
Saturday, Sept. 14
10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Covington Walmart (880 N. Highway 190)
3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Metairie Walmart (8912 Veterans Memorial Blvd.)
Sunday, Sept. 15
11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Kenner Walmart (300 W. Esplanade Ave.)
3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Harahan Walmart (5110 Jefferson Highway)
Legend has it that to get a weenie whistle from the Wienermobile, you must sing the Ocsar Mayer Wiener song.
