Budweiser Clydesdales will be parading through the Downtown Lodi Farmers Market tonight.

The clydesdales will meet in the Giant Discount Tire parking lot at the corner of Sacramento and Oak streets at 4:30 p.m. to get ready for the parade. At 5:30 p.m., they will make a loop of Downtown, going north on Sacramento Street, west on Locust Street, south on Church Street and then east on Lodi Avenue.

The horses will be available for photos from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Pine Street in front of Tillie's Coffee Tea Etc. The Downtown Lodi Business Partnership arranged for the clydesdales to come to the market.

    Joanne, they are probably subject to the same restrictions as truckers and pilots. They can drive only so many hours and then are required to take naps.

    It's an all night drive, Ms. Mirfield. After so many hours behind the wheel, those Clydesdales will need about 12 hours to rest and recover to look their best.

    Looking forward to seeing these beauties!!

    This is wonderful! But I am curious...the story states:

    "The clydesdales will meet in the Giant Discount Tire parking lot at the corner of Sacramento and Oak streets at 4:30 a.m. to get ready for the parade."

    Are they all driving into town separately? Watch out for the Clydesdale behind the wheel of that convertible!!

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
