Las Vegas (FOX5)-The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdale will reappear in Las Vegas this holiday season.
According to the new release, Clydesdale will create a special look by acting as the “Grand Marshal” of Downtown Summerlin’s free holiday parade at 6 pm on Friday.
For those unfamiliar with the iconic horse, Downtown Summerlin has a team of famous red, white and gold beer wagons with two traditionally dressed drivers and a Dalmatian coach dog. It states that it features eight horses to pull.
After serving as a grand marshal at the parade, Clydesdale heads to the grass. There, participants can see the group up close.
Downtown Summerlin provided fun facts about the famous horses.
- Clydesdale’s handmade harnesses and collars each weigh about 130 pounds.
- Budweiser Clydesdale is given short names such as Duke, Mark, and Bud to help drivers command horses during performances.
- Budweiser Clydesdale horseshoes are over 20 inches from end to end and weigh about 5 pounds.
- Dalmatians were known as coach dogs because they ran between coaches and carriage wheels and were fellow horses. Since the 1950s, Dalmatians have traveled with the Budweiser Clydesdale Hitch and are sitting on a wagon proudly sitting next to the driver.
- Around the end of the century, beer wagons have been meticulously restored and kept in good condition. The wagon is equipped with two braking systems. One is a hydraulic pedal device that slows down the corners and downhills of the vehicle, and the other is a handbrake that locks the rear wheels when the wagon is stopped.
