The World Famous Budweiser Clydesdales are visiting 2nd Street in Long Beach on Saturday, March 30, 2019. The event will run on 2nd Street from
noon to 2 p.m. 2PM to 4PM.
The full team will start with a stop at Panama Joe’s, then a photo opportunity and Legends Sports Bar and then proceed to Dogz, Riley’s and Shannon’s, finishing at Quinn’s Pub.
The Budweiser Clydesdales made their first-ever appearance on April 7, 1933. A gift from August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch to their father in celebration of the repeal of Prohibition, the presentation of the original two six-horse hitches of champion Clydesdales moved father, sons and drivers to tears. The phrase “crying in your beer” was officially coined shortly thereafter.
They heralded a new era of prosperity for Anheuser-Busch, and a weary nation’s return to optimism. From their first appearance in 1933 to their enduring presence on the American landscape, the Clydesdales are more than the symbol of Budweiser beer; they are the living embodiment of America’s great industrial spirit.
This is a great opportunity to see these magnificent animals close-up and to learn about their history!
