The Budweiser Clydesdales are coming to the Lowcountry but not to Bluffton.
And again they won’t be in the Hilton Head Island St. Patrick’s Day Parade
They’re going to what’s been called one of the largest event’s next to New York City. They’ll be in Savannah, Ga. from March 13-18 and will be making four appearances.
And being a week away, you still have time to plan to make the trip.
Never miss a local story.
This weekend is Hilton Head’s parade and you won’t be disappointed. While Budwesier’s hooved gentle giants won’t be stomping along the parade will still feature the Express Clydesdales, who have participated in the parade for the past two years, are coming back.
Their color markings make them different and rare.
Express’ horses are black with white markings whereas the Budweiser Clydesdale’s are chestnut with white markings.
According to the Express Clydesdales’ website, their colorings makes them a rare breed.
Only 10 percent of Clydesdales in the U.S. have the solid black and white coloring that the Express Clydesdales have.
You can see the Express Clydesdales unloading near the staging area in the Coligny Beach parking lot off of South Forest Beach Drive just before the parade on Sunday.
And don’t worry if you can’t make it down to Savannah to see the Budweiser Clydesdale.
According to Gabrielle Muething, St. Patrick’s Day Parade Board Chairman, they’re expected to be on Hilton Head Island for next year’s parade which falls on a Sunday.
“We will be having the parade on St. Patrick’s Day next year instead of the week before, so they should be back,” Muething said.
