SENECA ALLEGANY CASINO & HOTEL WELCOMES ICONIC BUDWEISER CLYDESDALES ON AUGUST 6 SALAMANCA, N.Y. – Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel is excited to welcome the worldfamous Budweiser® Clydesdales on Wednesday, Aug. 6. The event is free and open to the public, and takes place from noon to 2 p.m. outside the Salamanca, N.Y. casino resort. The eight magnificent horses – complete with a hitch, carriage and Dalmatian dog – will be available for up-close viewing and photos. The Clydesdales first made an appearance in 1933 and heralded a new era of prosperity for Anheuser-Busch. They represent a “living embodiment of America’s great industrial spirit” and are a perennial fan-favorite among Super Bowl television ads. To qualify for one of the traveling hitches, each member of the team must stand at least 72 inches at the shoulder when fully mature, weigh between 1,800 and 2,300 pounds, have a reddish brown (bay) coat, four white legs, a white blaze, and a black mane and tail. The Clydesdales last visited Western New York during Memorial Day weekend, including a stop at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in Niagara Falls. Large crowds gathered for photos and videos of the “gentle giants,” which made several trips around the casino’s perimeter as well as quick journey down nearby Old Falls Street in the heart of downtown.
The public is encouraged to arrive early for optimal viewing and interaction. Plenty of free parking is available at Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel along outdoor lots and the hotel parking ramp. Additional information about the event will be available soon at www.senecaalleganycasino.com.
