MINOT, N.D. (KXNET) — Due to the blizzard and poor road conditions, the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile released a statement saying they will not be able to make it to Minot this weekend.

“I have some bad news. Unfortunately, the team will not be able to make it up to Minot due to the poor road conditions, and we will have to cancel all of our events. While I wish this wasn’t the case, I’m confident that a different team will be in town when the weather conditions are a bit better.”

The Oscar Meyer team was grounded in Fargo yesterday and initially canceled the event for Friday only in hopes of making it to Minot this weekend. But due to the North Dakota Department of Transportation stating that the state is under a “No Travel Advised,” the team was forced to cancel.
