The Clydesdales Budweiser will be in Horsham on Saturday October 14th, 2017 from 10:00 am – 11:30 am. The Budweiser Clydesdales are well-known for their promotions and commercials by the Anheuser-BuschBrewing Company.
During the early 20th century, the Clydesdales delivered beer by wagon. Later on, the Budweiser Clydesdales were introduced to the public on April 7, 1933, to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition. August A. Busch, Jr. presented the hitch as a gift to his father, August Anheuser Busch, Sr., who was guided outside the brewery by the ruse of being told his son had purchased him a new car, but instead was greeted by the horses, pulling a red, white and gold beer wagon. The hitch proceeded to carry the first case of post-Prohibition beer from the St. Louis brewery in a special journey down Pestalozzi Street in St. Louis.
The Clydesdales will participate in the Horsham Tricentennial Parade, along with floats, firetrucks, marching bands, police, military, school groups, youth sports, dance companies, tractors, old-fashioned bikes, mummers and more.
