The Budweiser Clydesdales will return to the Illinois State Fair this year.

The iconic horses will be located near gate two when the fair begins August 12th through the 22nd.

"We are happy to welcome back the Budweiser Clydesdales," Illinois State Fair Manager Kevin Gordon said in a statement. "They’re a fan favorite and draw the attention of people of all ages."


Fairgoers can see the horses for the first time in the Twilight Parade, which kicks off the weeklong event.

The Clydesdales will also take part in five other parades, which take place August 15, 17, 20, 21 and 22 at 4 p.m.
