See Budweiser Clydesdales in Fort Lauderdale today

You can get a sneak peek at the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales, which will take part in the Fort Lauderdale St. Patrick's Parade on Saturday, during a free public viewing on Wednesday until 6 p.m. at the stables at Fort Lauderdale’s Holiday Park (just east of Parker Playhouse). The event includes tours of the Fort Lauderdale Police Mounted Unit stables, a petting zoo and pony rides. Don’t be surprised if the Clydesdales are busy while you're there:  Each horse, a minimum of 72 inches at the shoulder and between 1,800 and 2,300 pounds, typically consumes as much as 25 quarts of whole grains, minerals and vitamins, along with 50 to 60 pounds of hay, and 30 gallons of water per day.
