We were so fortunate to have been a part of the famous Budweiser Clydesdale hitching and parades that happened this past week in Minnesota.
The Clydesdales are known for being majestic horses, but their background is the historical value of their existence. Upon the repeal of prohibition, Augustus Busch was gifted a team of these horses as workload and atypical carriage horses to hand deliver beer to their accounts. It was an amazing sight to see, that is no longer used today, unless in parade form.
The Budweiser Girls were granted the opportunity to be part of this parade and walked along side the Clydesdales as they showed off their true strength and beauty. They visited the towns of Shakopee, Hopkins, and Minneapolis, and also helped host a private viewing party at Canterbury Park, a popular horse race track in the South Metro. They closed out the week with a show around Twins Stadium to initiate the kick off of a Minnesota Twins game.
It doesn’t happen often that we are graced with an appearance from the Budweiser Clydesdales, so we took full advantage of the time we were given and enjoyed every moment! To learn more about Budweiser and the Clydesdales, CLICK HERE.
