ROCKAWAY BEACH, Ore. (KOIN) — Do you want to see the world’s largest corn dog? Do you want to ride a mechanical corn dog?

Of course you do!

Saturday in Rockaway Beach is the grand opening of Pronto Pup, where you can be a corn dog cowboy.

The Pronto Pup was invented in Rockaway Beach, according to legend. A hot dog selling couple kept getting their buns ruined by the rain, so they decided to dip the dogs in pancake batter.

That batter, in case you were wondering, is the difference between a corn dog and a Pronto Pup. A corn dog is dipped in a batter made with cornmeal.
