Whether you are a horse lover or not, you won’t want to miss out on the chance to catch a Budweiser Clydesdale in action. Coming to five different spots in Birmingham and surrounding areas, there are plenty of opportunities to catch the “gentle giants” doing what they love.

“This is a momentous occasion for Adams to have the opportunity to bring the World Famous Budweiser Clydesdales here to Birmingham. The Clydesdales represent more than just Budweiser—they embody America’s industrial spirit as a whole, making them the perfect addition to lead such an important event like the 75th Annual National Veterans Day Parade, honoring those who put their lives on the line for American freedom. Whether they’re seen at a parade in Iowa, a rodeo in Texas or a Christmas market in Cullman, the Clydesdales are and will always be a crowd pleaser.”

Birmingham is home to America’s first Veterans Day Parade, so it’s only fitting that the Budweiser Clydesdales would make an appearance. Grand Marshal, Larry Lebeda, will accompany the Clydesdales in the red, white and gold beer wagon. As they lead the procession through Downtown Birmingham, the Clydesdales will deliver day-fresh Budweiser to participating bars and restaurants along the parade route.
