Hot dogs for a hot day

It didn’t matter that Friday was a hot, lazy day in the middle of summer. It got better because it was the day to celebrate the 10th National Hot Dog Day.

It didn’t matter that Friday was a hot, lazy day in the middle of summer. It got better because it was the day to celebrate the 10th National Hot Dog Day. 

Homewood-Flossmoor Park District hosted the event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 21 at Irwin Park with temperatures in the mid-80s and humidity at more than 60 percent.

“It’s a perfect day for Hot Dog Day,” said Darren Jasieniecki, marketing and public relations director for the park district.

Some families chomped hot dogs while sitting at colorfully painted picnic tables and others enjoyed the nearby playground.

In and around the gazebo, a large group of kids danced to the music of DJ Greg.

The annual event was co-sponsored this year by Walt’s Food Centers, Fox Vending, Pepsi and Dutch Farms.

 

 

  There was much dancing.
