Clear Channel Radio Huntington, WVA is preparing for the 2011 West Virginia Hot Dog Festival that will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, July 30, at Pullman Square and 3rd Avenue in downtown Huntington.

The event will kick off in the morning with a 5K, "Bun Run/Walk Your Buns Off," charity walk. All proceeds will benefit the Cabell-Huntington Children's Hospital.
