Clydesdales Lead St Pat's Parade

Clydesdales Lead St Pat's Parade

Baton Rouge loves it when the Budweiser Clydesdales Lead St Pat's Parade. It seems like everyone gets excited when the Budweiser Clydesdales are in Baton Rouge. It is such a grand entrance when the Clydesdales lead the St. Pat's Parade. The community absolutely adores them. Mockler Beverage, a long-time sponsor of the Wearin' of the Green, St. Patrick's Day Parade (since close to the beginning in the 1980's) has secured the Clydesdales to lead the parade for several years. In 2016, due to their relationship with Mockler Beverage who is the distributor for Budweiser locally, the famous Clydesdales team came to lead our parade. They are magnificent creatures. They were housed on the Mockler Beverages grounds with their elaborate, well-trained staff. Unfortunately, it rained in 2016 so many opportunities for the Clydesdales to interact with the public were cancelled. In 2022, the Clydesdales returned to Baton Rouge and, fortunately, our weather was much better. In 2023, Tim Mockler of Mockler Beverage was Grand Marshal. We were more than happy to have the Clydesdales return to lead the parade.
