LUDINGTON — The Budweiser Clydesdales team departed Ludington this morning on the SS Badger. The Clydesdales team was here to celebrate the Ludington Sesquicentennial and the 90th anniversary of Ludington Beverage Co. The team visited Manistee on Thursday and then made appearances in Ludington Friday and Saturday evenings. On Sunday, the public had the opportunity to see the horses in their stables at the Mason County Fairgrounds in Pere Marquette Township.

This was the fifth time the Clydesdales have visited the area. The first time was in September 1986 to celebrate the Scottville Harvest Festival, coinciding with the festival’s 50th anniversary. Unfortunately, several days of rains caused major flooding throughout the region, causing the appearance to be cancelled.
