The Oscar Meyer Wienermobile rolls into Connecticut this weekend — and it’s bringing a friend.

The hot dog on wheels joins the Planters NUTmobile, a legume-shaped vehicle, at stops across the state Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Find them at the Groton Municipal Building (295 Meridian St., Groton) March 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; the Children’s Museum in West Hartford (950 Trout Brook Drive) March 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and at the Goat Stroll at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield (32 Reeds Gap Road) March 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The NUTmobile will be giving away nut samples, and the Wienermobile has its classic Wiener Whistles.

Both mobiles have more than 80 years of history traveling the country, according to a news release, and are operated by recent college graduates who are hired to drive for a year.
