The iconic Budweiser Clydesdales will parade through Newark, pulling the famous red, white and gold carriage as it makes deliveries to downtown businesses. The appearance will take place on Saturday, July 15, from 2 - 4 p.m., beginning in the Newark Shopping Center on East Main Street and traveling to the Park-N-Shop plaza on South Main Street.As part of the appearance, there are slight impacts to parking and traffic in the area. There will be a rolling closure of one lane on E. Main Street from the area of Tyre Avenue to South Main Street between 2 - 4 p.m., as well as a slight delay on South Main Street from W. Main Street to Apple Road. In addition, metered parking near planned stops may be unavailable until the carriage has traveled past the area. The planned stops are expected to be a short duration (3-5 minutes) and traffic is expected to continue to flow through the respective areas during the event.
Presently, the Budweiser Clydesdales reside at the Anheuser-Busch breweries in St. Louis; Merrimack, New Hampshire.; and Fort. Collins, Colorado for public viewing. Visitors can also see the Clydesdales up-close at Warm Springs Ranch, the premier Budweiser Clydesdales breeding establishment in Boonville, Missouri, and at their training facility on the grounds of Grant's Farm in St. Louis. Both attractions are open seasonally.
When they're not making appearances around the country, the Budweiser Clydesdales also continue to be marketing stalwarts for Anheuser-Busch. They first appeared in the Super Bowl in 1986, and have since appeared in more than 25 Super Bowl commercials for the company.
