WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council designated the month of July as Hot Dog Month.
This year, Wednesday, July 19, was also designated at National Hot Dog Day.
Hot dogs are a favorite staple for summer bar-b-q's throughout the country.
The first National Hot Dog Day was established in 1991 to coincide with a hot dog lunch held on Capitol Hill every year on the third Wednesday of July.
If you chomp down on a hot dog today post it to social media with the hashtag #NationalHotDogDay to encourage others to grab their own.
In celebration of National Hot Dog Day taking place Wednesday, July 19, Love's Travel Stops is giving away free hot dogs to its customers today.
Customers can access a barcode for their free hot dog or roller grill item on Love's official Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.
Today customers can redeem one coupon per transaction at participating Love's locations.
