How Often Do The Budweiser Clydesdale Horses Shave?

Question: How Often Do The Budweiser Clydesdale Horses Shave?

Answer: Once a week!

The horses spend their downtime in New Orleans City Park during Carnival each year. Merlin, the horse pictured here, weighs in at 2000 lbs, and will walk in many of the parades during Mardi Gras.

First introduced in 1933, after the repeal of Prohibition, the Clydesdales have served as living symbols of not just Budweiser, but also the unconquerable American spirit. Famous worldwide for their appearances in parades, television broadcasts, and even Presidential inaugurations, they're now set to make their most important appearance yet - the one with you!

Meet the Budweiser Clydesdales! The annual Horses, Hops and Cops fundraiser is a wonderful, family-friendly event featuring live music, food and beverages, arts & crafts, face painting, and horses! 

Hang out with the hitch and get your picture taken with these living legends!

New Bass Record

A new record has been set for bass caught in New Orleans City Park.

On Wednesday, February 8, 2017, Anthony Mike caught a 9.1 lbs beauty bass using a 7" June Bug plastic worm. Fishing near the pier located off Scout Island, it was a banner day for him!

 Anthony, who currently lives in Lafitte, LA,  has been fishing in City Park for over fifteen years.  We will be giving Anthony special recognition at this year's annual Big Bass Fishing Rodeo on Saturday, March 25, 2017.  (The previous record for bass was 9.01 lbs.)
