The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) announced that the famous Budweiser Clydesdales will visit Grand Rapids in October in conjunction with the new exhibition American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition. This event will take place as part of the partnership with Anheuser-Busch for the exhibition, since the exhibit also includes Anheuser-Busch artifacts from the Prohibition era.

The Budweiser Clydesdales will be on the grounds of the GPRM and the Holiday Inn Downtown parking lot on Friday, October 23 and Saturday, October 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. where guests can interact with the hitch team and take photographs. Seeing the Budweiser Clydesdales is free of charge; admission into the American Spirits exhibition is included with general admission to the GRPM. The appearance is weather permitting of course.
