Here's a sneak peak at a new item that's locally made and available at the end of the midway.
This is the Big Dog. It's a two foot long hot dog. It's made by Petit Jean Meats, which means it's quality.
The Big Dog is yet another new product being introduced for the first time this year by the Morrilton meat packing company. It's a two foot long hot dog. You can get it on a bun by itself or with a number of different condiments, including chili and cheese. It's massive.
The Big Dog is being served at the Blue Moon Pavilion. It's $15 naked, $18 with chili and cheese and $20 with the works -- or pay $30 and get four drinks with it. Each section can be customized for each person diving in.
The Big Dog itself is a beef and pork weiner. It's served on an extra long bun created by Community Bakery.
