The Budweiser Clydesdales are visiting downtown Auburn today, making delivery stops along their route. The horses are set to parade through the downtown streets 5–7 p.m., causing closures.
Magnolia Avenue between College and Wright streets will be closed 4–8 p.m. The entire parade route, which includes sections of Magnolia Avenue and Gay, College and Tichenor streets, will be closed 5–7 p.m.
The horses are coming to Auburn at the request of local beer wholesaler Adams Beverages for their new warehouse grand opening, according to Adams Beverages Marketing Director Lauren Carmack.
Adams Beverages provides beer to Auburn and Opelika restaurants and bars such as Moe’s Original BBQ, Niffer’s Place, The Hound and 17-16.
“They’ll not only be parading, but they’ll be stopping and doing some beer deliveries to each of the stores,” Carmack said of the Clydesdale team.
“We had to book them way in advance. We put in a request about a year ago to have them here for our grand opening.”
