Wednesday, April 24

El Paseo Shopping District will once again welcome the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales on Wednesday April 24, as they make deliveries to restaurants on El Paseo on their way to the Stagecoach Country Music Festival. They will be unloaded and hitched on the frontage road parallel to Highway 74 behind the Daily Grill beginning at 12:45 p.m., and begin their journey down El Paseo at 2 p.m.
The eight-horse hitch and red Budweiser beer wagon will be accompanied by the Dalmatian “coach dog,” bred and trained to protect the regal horses and guard the beer wagon. This event is free and open to the public to watch along the route or plan to have lunch in one of the many fun restaurants to enjoy watching the Clydesdales at work.
Throughout the year the El Paseo Shopping District is home to many popular events, including Fashion Week El Paseo, A Miracle on El Paseo, Swing ‘N Hops, and many others. With 9 blocks covering over a mile, El Paseo offers an abundance of dining and shopping options with more than 220 businesses including nearly 40 restaurants. Among the many celebrated retailers are boutiques for men and women, art galleries, home furnishings, and accessories from shoes and handbags to fine jewelry, collectibles, as well as fitness facilities. A variety of exceptional restaurants offers something for everyone, from casual dining and American cuisine, to fine dining and extraordinary cuisine.
