Catch the Budweiser Clydesdales when they visit the area next month with a full schedule of appearances including Erie County Fair, Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel, Coca Cola Field and Goat Island Parade.
The iconic horses made their first appearance on behalf of Anheuser-Busch on April 7, 1933, when they delivered a case of Budweiser to the White House in celebration of the repeal of prohibition of beer. The Clydesdale is a breed of draught horse derived from the farm horses of
