The Budweiser Clydesdales will be coming to Sulphur Springs June 6th through 8th. The Clydesdales’ visit will culminate with an appearance in the Hopkins County Dairy Festival Parade on June 8th. A full schedule of appearances is below.
The Budweiser Clydesdales made their first-ever appearance on April 7, 1933. A gift from August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch to their father in celebration of the repeal of Prohibition, the presentation of the original two six-horse hitches of champion Clydesdales moved father, sons and drivers to tears. The phrase “crying in your beer” was officially coined shortly thereafter.
