Pine Belt devotees, as well as the just plain curious, are invited to attend and perhaps ‘ketchup’ with the with the famous car, take pictures and receive your own Wiener Whistle.
The Wienermobile, whose drivers are known collectively as the “Hotdoggers,” refers to a fleet of motor-vehicles shaped like a hot dog on a bun, which are used to promote and advertise Oscar Mayer products in the United States.
The first Wienermobile was created in 1936 by Oscar Mayer’s nephew, Carl G. Mayer.
Today’s Wienermobile is a 27-foot-long hot dog on wheels. In fact, there are six traveling across the U.S. at any given time.
Access to the Hattiesburg Zoo requires regular admission cost. Annual passes do apply.
There is no admission cost for the Hattiesburg Pocket Museum.
