The visit to Clarksville is one of the 300 visits made annually around the United States by the five traveling hitches of Budweiser Clydesdale horses.  Each horse stands at approximately six feet tall at the shoulder and weighs an average of 2000 pounds.  The horses are friendly and enjoy meeting millions of people each year.

A few streets in the downtown area will be closed on August 13 in preparation for the Clydesdales and concert.  Strawberry Alley will be closed to through traffic in front of City Hall starting at 1 p.m. on the day of the event.  US Bank’s drive-through and City Hall parking lots will be accessible.  Also, the south end of Public Square and Franklin Street from the First Street intersection to Public Square will be closed to through traffic beginning at 1p.m.
