Dewey Business Partnership is pleased to announce that the Budweiser Clydesdales will be returning to Dewey Beach on Wednesday, July 12 for our Great American Summer Celebration and Parade. 6:00 p.m. to 8 p.m.! For the parade on Wednesday, July 12th, the horses and their team will be strutting their stuff through town beginning at 5P.M. when they will stage at Saulsbury Street. From there they will make their way to the Starboard for a parade pre-party. While petting the horses is a no-no, the public will have opportunities to get photos with the clydesdales, from a small distance. Also on hand will be the Quaker City String Band Mummers from Philadelphia.
At 6:30P.M., the parade will begin at Saulsbury Street and move South along Route One. It will make a right turn up Dickinson to the Circle, back to Rt. One and continue to Van Dyke Street. The Clydesdales, being the cornerstone of the parade, will appear at the end. They will stop at the Dickinson Street Circle at 7:00 P.M. for an hour, then continue to Van Dyke Street and the bay where they will be from 8:00 - 8:45 P.M. The Clydesdales will be unhitched at Van Dyke and be returned to the Budweiser Trailers.
This is a great opportunity for the whole family to come out, don their red, white and blue, and partake in a freshly minted Dewey Beach tradition. Parking meters and permitted spots are FREE from 5-11P.M. in the town, though organizers are encouraging everyone to arrive early. Those with children are encouraged to go to the bayside beach at Dickinson at the Lighthouse/Rudder or the bayside beach at Que Pasa for ease.
So break out your red, white and blue and come partake in a tradition as American as apple pie! The Budweiser Clydesdales are coming, and it’s fun for the whole family. For more information visit “Dewey Business Partnership” on Facebook!
