It's been rolling around Peoria for almost a week now.

And it's pretty safe to say if it was in your neighborhood, you couldn't have missed it.

The famous Oscar Mayer Wiener mobile first appeared in Peoria Monday.

Since then it's made stops at a number of local schools, hospitals and other locations.

Today the 27 foot long weiner was at the Peoria Public library's McClure-branch, where local kids were able to take tours of it.

The Wiener-mobile workers say their stay in Central Illinois has been an eventful one.

Hotdogger, Joey Besl said "this week, everyone's been so excited. We've done so many great events. We just went to a blood drive, we delivered Meals on Wheels, and everywhere we went people have been so excited to see it. So we've really enjoyed our time here in Peoria."

And they're not done yet.

Tomorrow the wiener-mobile will be at the OSF St. Francis Children's Hospital of Illinois.

That is the last stop, though, as Monday it's heading to Madison, Wisconsin.
