Mystic — Organizers of the 15th annual Mystic Irish Parade have announced that the Budweiser Clydesdales will participate in the March 25 parade.

The 10-horse team last marched in the parade 10 years ago. The horses, which are scheduled to arrive on March 20 and leave March 26, will be housed in a temporary stable constructed at Mystic Seaport.

“It doesn’t get much better than bringing these classic animals to Mystic,” said Neil Ryan, vice president of the Mystic Irish Parade Foundation, in the announcement.

He added that when the Clydesdales last participated in the parade, it resulted in the largest turnout in the event’s 15-year history.

The six-foot tall, one-ton Clydesdales will be available for public viewing at the Seaport during their stay. Times and details will be announced in the coming weeks.
