That would be the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile—you know, the car (truck? van? vehicle) shaped like a giant hotdog. I saw the story on KTVZ tonight, and yes, there were some details I got in email as well:
The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will ketchup with families in the Bend area between Oct. 24 and Oct. 30 for a variety of unique,
family-friendly and festive Halloweenie events! The Wienermobile is linking up with grassroots organizations in the Bend community to give families a week to relish!
For 75 years, the Wienermobile has been on a mission to spread miles of smiles across the hot dog highways of America. With the Wienermobile in town, we want to give Bend area residents something to smile about. Throughout the week, the Wienermobile will be meating Bend residents at various locations across Bend for some franktastic festivities that are not to be missed!

I don’t know if I can handle all those puns.
The KTVZ articles also has a ton of facts about the Wienermobile, with tidbits such as having a hotdog-shaped dashboard along with a voice-activated GPS system. The more you know right?
