Spencer, IA (KICD)–The Spencer tradition known as Crazy Days kicks off tonight with Thanks with Franks.
Spencer Mainstreet Director Bob Rose tells KICD News that the downtown businesses came up with the idea to give away free hot dogs to Spencer citizens 28 years ago.
Over the past several years it was decided to tie in Thanks with Franks with Crazy Days to give both events a needed boost.
Combining the two events on the same evening boosted attendance for the Crazy Days kickoff evening and they seemed to mesh well with one another. Rose says they will have a pair of stations along Grand Avenue for folks to get a free hot dog.
Thanks with Franks runs from 5-7 tonight with Crazy Days lasting throughout the weekend.
