Ten world famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses have taken up temporary residency at J.F Gregory Park, where they will be until March 17.
"This has been a very popular event in the past, and this year should be no exception," said city parks director Harvey Lashley. "Each time we’ve had this event before, several thousand people have come out. We see people out here all day long."
The Clydesdale arrived on Monday. Lashley said the horses are available for viewing from "sunup to sundown, and you can’t get this close to these horses anywhere else. This is a real special treat."
Anheuser-Busch chose Richmond Hill as a rest stop between parade appearances for the renowned horses based on the serene setting and ideal climate here. They just came off the road from an appearance at Bike Week in Daytona Beach and, while here, the horses will visit Savannah Mall tomorrow from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., the Tybee St. Patrick’s Parade on Saturday and will leave shortly after participating in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Savannah on Tuesday.
