CLEVELAND– The iconic Budweiser Clydesdales are coming to Cleveland.

These world-famous horses will be at the corner of Huron Road and East 4th Street from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday. The eight-horse hitch and red wagon will parade down Huron and into Progressive Field.

The Cleveland Indians play the Angels at home Saturday at 7:10 p.m. The first 12,500 fans will receive a Bob Feller bobblehead.

According to Budweiser, this is just one of hundreds of appearances the Clydesdales make each year.

A few fun facts about the Budweiser Clydesdales:

-Horses must be at least 3 years old and stand about six feet tall to be selected for the group. They weigh about 2,000 pounds.

-All the Clydesdales are bay in color with white legs, white on their faces. They also have black manes and tails.

-It’s essential these “gentle giants” have an easy-going temperament since they greet millions of people annually.

-The hitch travels with a Dalmation, which was originally used to guard the wagon during beer deliveries.
