The iconic team of Budweiser Clydesdales will return to parade through Bay St. Louis streets January 31, at 6pm. Their appearance last year drew huge crowds, some of the biggest to turn out to see the famous draft horses pulling the red fire wagon. Andxpect their spotted Dalmatian mascot to be along for the ride.
“The Bay St. Louis crowd was great last year,” said James Hargrove, Gulfport sales manager of Mitchell Distributing which is sponsoring the visit. “It was one of the best crowds, if not the best, on the entire coast. People really came out to see them.”
The horses will again be based at the Harrison County Fairgrounds during their Coast visit. They will also parade in Biloxi, Gulfport and Ocean Springs over four days.
The Bay St. Louis parade route will be the same as last year, starting and ending at the Depot.
