El Paseo Shopping District welcomes the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales on Wednesday April 25, as they make deliveries to restaurants on El Paseo on their way to Stagecoach. 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. Delivery stops include the Daily Grill, then Tommy Bahamas, where they will then make a U-turn at San Luis Rey and deliver to Piero’s Pizza Vino, The Fix, IL Corso, Armando’s, and California Pizza Kitchen – concluding at about 4 p.m.  This event is free and open to the public to see them making their deliveries.

Throughout the year El Paseo is home to many popular events such as this and including Fashion Week, Bighorn BAM, Swing ‘N Hops, and many others. El Paseo offers an abundance of dining and shopping options during these events, and every day with over 250 retailers and nearly 40 restaurants. Among celebrated retailers are boutiques for men and women, home furnishings, and accessories from shoes and handbags to jewelry, collectibles, as well as fitness facilities. A variety of exceptional restaurants offer something for everyone, from casual dining and American cuisine, to fine dining and extraordinary cuisine.
