NEW YORK CITY & NEW JERSEY — The famed Budweiser Clydesdales will be in the area through early December.

According to the Budweiser website, the original Clydesdales were a gift to August A. Busch, Sr. to commemorate the repeal of the Prohibition. Since 1933, the eight-horse hitch has been pleasing thousands of crowds all over the nation.

The horses will make an appearance at the New York Stock Exchange’s tree lighting on Thursday, Nov. 29. Festivities take place from 2:30 to 6:00 p.m.
