(La Porte, IN) - They’re, perhaps, the most famous horses ever and they’re coming to La Porte. The Budweiser Clydesdales will call La Porte home for about a week. They will first appear at the Red, Wine and Brew tasting event and concert on July 2 along Johnson Road near 500 West.
Carrie Garwood is with Bethany Lutheran Church, which was able to make the necessary contacts for the Red, Wine and Brew also sponsored by the house of worship. “They really are the superstars of horses,” she said.
Garwood said the Budweiser Clydesdales will also be in the July 4 parade in La Porte and appear during the first day of the La Porte County Fair. Arrangements to bring the Clydesdales here went through Alec Smith, a La Porte native who attended Bethany Lutheran Church. He went from raising horses as a child to being one of the drivers of the wagon pulled by the Clydesdales.
Montgomery Gentry and John Michael Montgomery are the headline acts for the event to be held in an open field near the Summit Farm.
