It’s nearly the Independence Day weekend (seriously, how did that happen?)! What goes hand in hand with celebrating our Freedom, better than a parade, featuring the iconic, fire engine red Studabaker wagon, pulled by it’s team of Budweiser Clydesdales?
I’m often guilty of forgetting just how easy it is to find out where one of the three traveling hitches will be shown. The best place to start is the official website: http://www.budweiser.com/en/clydesdales/hitch-schedule.html (remember, you must be 21 to view this site). Once you know a hitch will be in your area, remember, as their schedule permits, they often fill time with smaller events. I’ve had good luck searching local news websites and social media with just the words “Budweiser Clydesdales.”
For example, I was just told a hitch will be in Newark, OH on Friday, July 14th for a parade honoring Active Duty and Military Veterans. The event is sponsored by Matesich Distributing, also in Newark. Through that post, I learned they’ll also be on Put-in-Bay island on Sunday, July 2nd! http://www.millerferry.com/events/2017-07/ For this, they’ll actually have to travel by ferry, which would be quite a spectacle!
Please remember, on our holiday and every day, to thank our Veteran and Active Duty service men and women, First Responders, Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, and the like. They work hard every day to ensure the good life we have here, we owe it to them to not take our Freedom for granted!
Happy Fourth of July, and God Bless America!
