Let’s be frank: Heritage Woods of Sterling hosted our first Hot Dog Day!

Is their anything more American than the humble hot dog? We know that we all hold so dear things like hot dogs and other Americana dishes.

We were so excited to participate with the annual downtown Sterling event that was held on the same day. Our community is located on the outskirts of town, and we decided to host our own Hot Dog Day at Heritage Woods. We passed out our meal deals in vintage box cars. Guests were able to zoom out of the parking lot with a Ford Fairlane, Ford Mustang or a Chevy Corvette.

Hot dogs were sold for 25 cents and meal deals only cost $1. Our visitors were able to have condiments. Some had the hot and heavy debate of which ones should be used. Should it be ketchup, mustard, relish, onions or pickles? We learned that everyone likes their hot dogs topped off differently.

Everyone had a fantastic time, and the turnout was amazing. From residents, families and friends, we had a steady flow of customers. We even had a couple on their motorcycle feast on their lunch under the quiet shade of the trees.

This was a great community event to get the public over to Heritage Woods and become more familiar with our community. We even had our own hot dog mascot!

In the afternoon, we played hot dog trivia and ended up with a bustling round of “I Wish I was an Oscar Mayer Weiner.

Jokes were served up at this event as well and the best one told was:

What do you call a Hot Dog race?
Weiner takes all!
