Pronto Pup’s annual winter weekend is scheduled for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The downtown Grand Haven stand, located at 313 S. Harbor Ave., will be open between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. Jan. 19-21.

People hungry for the famous hot dog on a stick, normally available only during the summer, come from all over the region to get their winter fix of the iconic treat.

Last year, owner Carl Nelson said they purchased almost $3,400 worth of hot dogs and went through almost 150 pounds of flour mix.

The stand has been open at its waterfront spot, next to Snug Harbor restaurant, since May 1947. It’s official opening date for the 2018 summer season is May 4.
