ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Military Bowl will be played in Annapolis tomorrow and festivities have already begun.

The Budweiser Clydesdales arrived on Thursday and were strolling through West Annapolis. A couple thousand people got up an up close and personal look at the impressive team of horses.

This is the 7th year the Clydesdales have marched in the Military Bowl Parade.

"Oh, it's so much fun, there's tons of people that come out and the horses are always a neat surprise to get to see."

They travel with 10 horses and hitch up 8. These Clydesdales are not only fed well, they are immaculate, from top to bottom.

The Clydesdales started when the Bush brothers bought two of these to celebrate the end of prohibition in 1933. They were the first horses to deliver beer in Washington DC back in 1933. They delivered beer to the Capital and the White House.
