We're thrilled you're looking into traveling to our region to attend the annual WV HOT DOG Festival!  The festival is held the last Saturday in July each year...on 3rd Avenue, between 8th & 10th Streets, and Pullman Square, in downtown Huntington.  The festival features live music & entertainment, car & truck shows, inflatables, attractions, and activities for the kids, the annual Bun Run 5K (8a), the family "Buns on Bikes" bicycle tour of the city (9:30a), fun contests for every member of your family (including the family dog!), crafts & shopping, and 12 of our top hot dog businesses in the region—all in one location—so you can sample as many hot dogs from as many vendors as you'd like!  It's a fun day—and all the proceeds benefit the pediatric oncology unit at Cabell-Huntington Hospital's Children's Hospital...helping local kids and families from our Tri-State region.  Invite family and friends, and come share the day with us!
