Monona police said Wednesday afternoon the famous Budweiser Clydesdales made a trip through town to deliver a case of beer to a Monona resident.
Mike Darcey snapped these photos of the horses getting prepped with their hitch team and red wagon for the trip from Monona Drive to Panther trail.
Police said the trip was courtesy of Wisconsin Distributors. A Monona man had been chosen through a drawing to receive a case of beer delivered by Budweiser's famous horses.
The team of eight Clydesdales and a red sleigh were unloaded from semis and assembled in the parking lot at Licali’s Market & Spirits on Monona Drive, police said.
Dan O’Brien, assistant manager at Licali's, said at its height, the crowd numbered about 300 and people were excited to see the well-groomed beer ambassadors.
"They were beautiful," O'Brien said. "They had ribbons and their tied and their tails were all tied up nice."
