TICKETS
The Budweiser Clydesdales are coming to Fairmount on August 28, 2014. They usually arrive a little after 6PM and begin to hitch the team in front of Eastern State Penitentiary (across from Urban Saloon.) 
They then visit each of the bars and restaurants on the avenue from 20th to 25th Streets. It’s quite spectacular to see.
