Budweiser Clydesdales Making A Stop In North Carolina Soon
We all remember seeing the beautiful, world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales in ads during the “big game.” They first appeared in ads in 1975. And, now you have a chance to see them in person. The Budweiser Clydesdales are making a stop in Fayetteville, North Carolina this week. According to CBS17 , the U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Museum hosts the beautiful show horses this week. And, the free, family friendly event takes place Thursday, March 23 from 2-4 p.m. The Budweiser Clydesdales make hundreds of appearances around the nation every year. And, the group takes their appearances seriously, traveling with teams of caretakers, groomers and handlers overseeing their care.
And, according to their website it all began in 1933 with August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch III. That is when they gifted their father with a 6-horse Clydesdale hitch. If the year rings historically familiar to you, there’s a reason for that. It was the year Prohibition was repealed. And, the family saw potential for marketing. A large crowd watched during their first visit to New York City during which the family presented a case of Budweiser to the governor. Then, in 1950 they introduced a Dalmatian as mascot. So, as you see it’s quite the story of tradition and ceremony. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the Budweiser Clydesdales as they make their stop in Fayetteville Thursday. Below is from a recent stop in Greenville.
