STL Tradition Needs Your Support

The news is reporting that InBev has started charging a $2,000 appearance fee for bringing the famed Budweiser Clydesdales to your community event. $2,000 is a low price to pay for one of the world's most recognized corporate symbols. It's downright cheap. For comparison, an inflatable jumpie rents for about $450.

The season for parish picnics, school parades, and block parties is right around the corner. Why not consider hiring the Budweiser Clydesdales to be a featured attraction? You would be doing your part to maintain a long time local tradition and your event would have bragging rights for years to come!

It would be fun to watch the Budweiser Clydesdales march in the Central West End's nighttime Halloween parade.

I have never attended it, but if they brought the Clydedales, I think I would. It would be awesome!

And the Central West End could easily afford the $2,000 bucks.

This is a joke, right? It's got to cost more than $2,000 to truck the Clydesdale's and all their gear to a function. Care and feeding alone would be more than that.

Doesn't InBev use the Clydesdales as part of its A-B branding? You'd think the Cardinals would charge InBev for the privilege of parading their Clydesdales around Busch Stadium.

I was told $2000 per day, WITH a 3 day minimum. Plus, transport, care, feeding, etc.
