Luverne celebrates 50th Hot Dog Nite


The best place in the world to be last Thursday was Luverne, Minnesota, population 4,745, for the 50th Annual Hot Dog Nite!  A small town celebration at its finest, the event featured much more than 15,000 free hot dogs:  live music, entertainment, dance and tae kwon do demonstrations, the Wienerman World Championship Triathlon and, of course wiener dog races.  Thanks as always to our friends 'Oscar' and 'Hans' for sending in the link to the Star Herald which has several photos from the event. 


'Charlie' (in his tuxedo outfit) and Bob Hassebroek, Rock Rapids, Iowa, too third place in the Wiener Dog Beauty Contest.
