Positively Northland: Wienermobile visit, Real Ranger, and cleaning parks

Updated: July 31, 2020 10:21 AM

"Every day's a little bit different when we're on the Hotdog Highways."

We all know the song, and you surly can't miss that giant hotdog rolling into town!

"We like to say that we're a moving PR Firm," says Mustard Mag. "So when we get to a town like Duluth, we like to reach out about our events that we're doing, and go around the area, delivering miles of smiles!"

This week, the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile made a stop in the Twin Ports; calling Duluth "home" until August 10th.

"No matter how bad of a day somebody is having, at the end of the day when this drives by, everybody's mouth shoots up into a smile every time. Phones out, taking pictures- it never gets old! Never."

Zach & Cheese and Mustard Mags say if you want them to stop by an event you're having -- just follow 'Oscar Meyer' on Instagram to get in touch.

"Hi, I'm Beth. And I'm Jaimie. We're Real Rangers."

Real Ranger is a community movement, developed with the future of the Iron Range in mind.

"We're an online community on Facebook and Instagram, sharing people, places, and events that make the Iron Range a place to be celebrated!"

Beth and Jaimie say there's not a better time to dig deep, share the Minnesota Nice we've always been known for -- and turn the tide toward a better future.

"So find us online, and private message us so we can share more. We're calling on you -- there's no better time or place in this giant Iron Range community. Together, we'll let the whole work know how great the Iron Range really is!"

At just 10 years old, Tylee looked around her neighborhood park, and decided to do something about all the trash. So, she gathered up her friends and headed over to Oaks Park -- for a little cleaning, and a little playing!

"My friend Sophia & I made a group, she made the t-shirts," Tylee says. "We are all wearing green, and we just decided to clean up because we realized how dirty it is everywhere!"

She hopes to make it a weekly effort. And they also have a feathery friend, or mascot of sorts, offering up some moral support and smiles as the kids help every park visitor stay Positvely Northland.
