Budweiser Clydesdale Horses visit Fairmount for Made in America

Budweiser Clydesdale Horses visit Fairmount for Made in America

Three big trailers pulled up in front of the Eastern State Penitentiary and the workers began to assemble the horses.

There was a nice crowd assembled, considering there was no schedule printed, just signs posted all around Fairmount with the same message “Budweiser Clydesdale Horses” here 6PM – 9PM. Most signs were posted in front of bars & restaurants, but no specific times and no idea that they would have a parade of sorts. Kinda odd and confusing.

Thankfully Fairmounters are curious and they just showed up on the street at 6PM and found them.

 so adorable

First stop was Urban Saloon. Then they continue their trek down Fairmount and I hear they went to the Rose Tattoo and Kite and Key, returning to the neighborhood an hour later. I wish I had followed them. I thought they were just going to the end of the street and turning around.


Love seeing Terry McNally from London Grill, 23rd & Fairmount. At each stop the bar owners would get a case of Bud.

Sometimes they would hop on the carriage, like Jeff Keel the owner of Bishop’s Collar at 24th and Fairmount.  And look who I got across the street at 2401 Fairmount. I bet you didn’t know this guy really existed: Check out my Philly Mag column today.
