Budweiser Clydesdales coming to the BJCC
BIRMINGHAM – The Budweiser Clydesdales will prance into Birmingham on November 9 for a six-day stay in stables set up at the BJCC. The National Veterans Day Foundation arranged for the horses to come to the Magic City to march in the Veterans Day Parade on November 11 through downtown Birmingham.
While in Birmingham, the 10 rare Scottish-bred horses will be housed in stables at the parking lot at 22nd Street North and Richard Arrington Jr. Boulevard by Uptown Park. The public is invited to see the Clydesdales at their temporary home at the BJCC during set viewing times. Admission is free.
Budweiser Clydesdales will be available for viewing:
Nov. 10, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Nov. 11, 5 - 7 p.m.
Nov. 12, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Nov. 13, 2 - 5 p.m.
The horses will be among 4,000 participants of Birmingham’s Veterans Day Parade that includes vintage military vehicles and aircraft. The parade starts at 1:30 p.m. on November 11 at 18th Street North and 8th Avenue North.
Besides marching in the Veterans Day Parade, Budweiser says the Clydesdales will make an appearance at the Riverchase Galleria at 10 a.m. on November 13.
The BJCC hosting the Budweiser Clydesdales next week is an exciting example of the variety of offerings available at the complex, said BJCC Executive Director Tad Snider.
“With Legacy Arena, the Concert Hall, vast exhibit space and the Uptown District, the BJCC embraces its role in contributing to the community’s entertainment and cultural experiences in so many different ways,” Snider said. “Now, thanks to the National Veterans Day Foundation, we feel fortunate to play a role in being able to offer Birmingham the opportunity to see the most famous horses in the world – the Budweiser Clydesdales.”
