Main Street Kent Announces Clydesdales Coming Back to Kent Aug. 11

The world renowned Budweiser Clydesdales are coming to Kent on Thursday, Aug. 11, to parade the downtown district, visiting many longtime customers along the way. Residents and visitors are invited to come downtown that day to enjoy the parade and patronize the establishments who support Anheuser-Busch, the company that has carried on a legacy of brewing America’s most popular beers for more than 160 years.

The parade route will begin on North Water Street near the Hometown Bank Plaza, with the Clydesdales scheduled to arrive at 5:30 p.m. The parade will then begin at 6:30 p.m., heading from West Main Street to Franklin Avenue, College Avenue, South Water Street, East Main Street, South Depeyster Street, East Erie Sreet, circling back to South Water Street. The parade will end at the staging area where it began on North Water Street. It is estimated that the parade will last two hours, with stops for photo opportunities and celebratory beer deliveries being made at many downtown businesses. Streets will be closed for the parade, and Main Street Kent volunteers will work with the Kent Police Department and Anheuser-Busch crew to ensure the community has a great experience as the Clydesdales make their return visit to the city of Kent, after their last trip in 2009.

Main Street Kent staff invites you to join them in welcoming the Budweiser Clydesdales back to Kent on Aug. 11 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
