Kentucky Floods

The famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses that were to the be star attraction at Roanoke St. Patrick’s Day parade are headed back home and will not be here Saturday. We got the word from Carol Young at Healing Strides of Virginia, a therapeutic horse center which had planned its own Clydesdale event tomorrow:

The Clydesdales had already arrived in Roanoke and were being housed at the Hollins University stables before the word came down to return home.

Late Thursday afternoon, word came down that the Roanoke parade is cancelled.
