July 11th 2014 was proclaimed "Joel Watkins Day." The famed hot dog vendor has been serving up meals to Rockies fans on the corner of 19th and Wynkoop since Opening Day.

Mayor Hancock visited the hot dog stand on Friday with a proclamation, leaving Joel speechless.

Watkins is known for his smile, charisma, and the fact that he hasn't changed his prices since first pitch in 1993.

The hot dog stand is located on 19th and Wyncoop.
