Budweiser Clydesdales to Kick Off Brewery Lights Opening Ceremony
The Budweiser Clydesdales have been back in Fort Collins for a bit, and now they're going to kick off the 5th annual Brewery Lights.
The lighting ceremony will take place on Friday, November 15 at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten and Tour Center in Fort Collins.
The event officially starts at 5 p.m., when Mayor Wade Troxell, Brewery General Manager Gene Bocis, and a Clydesdale will flip on the lights.
Once the switch is flipped, guests will be able to view thousands of gorgeous lights and partake in numerous holiday activities.
The Clydesdales will be available for photo opportunities until 7 p.m. that night.
However, if you're unable to attend, don't worry. The horses will also be available for pictures from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on November 17, 23, and 24 during their one horse shows.
The Brewery Lights themselves will be open from 5-9 p.m. every Friday through Sunday until December 29, offering the public synchronized light shows, s'mores roasting, the Brewery Express train rides, and a holiday tree maze.
Those who are 21+ can enjoy free beer samples, but hot cocoa and food will also be provided in The Biergarten.
For the little ones, a Kid Zone is available every Sunday so that families can enjoy the lights while their children blow off some steam. A gift shop is also on hand if a child feels like replacing their teddy-bear with a stuffed Clydesdale.
Guests who want to go all out with their Brewery Lights experience can purchase special VIP packages here. Regular viewing is free to the public.
Outside of the festivities, the Clydesdales can be found in their stables, where guests can visit them until November 24.
When you're not too busy admiring the lights, don't forget to stop by and say
hey neigh to them.
