If you're a fan of the Budweiser Clydesdale horses, we have good news for you: they're coming to the Lehigh Valley in September.

It's also good news for the Bethlehem's Mounted Patrol Unit, which is teaming up with the Clydesdales for a fundraiser to benefit the city's police horses.

The Clydesdales will be in the area for a few days in September, including a visit to Coca-Cola Park on September 17, and at the  Valley Preferred Cycling Center September 14 for the Valley Preferred Wheels for Hope Charity Bike Ride.      
The fundraiser works like this: police will sell paper horseshoes around the Lehigh Valley. People who buy the horseshoes —$1 each—get entered into a drawing to win  Budweiser gift pack and a six pack of tickets to the Gildan Triple A National Championship Game being played at Coca Cola Park on September 17.

As an added bonus, the Clydesdales will deliver the prize to the winner's doorstep on September 15.

"It will be nice having more horsepower in the Lehigh Valley. Especially when the Clydesdales are here to help boost fundraising for our unit”, Officer Jon Buskirk, a member of the Mounted Patrol Unit said in a news release.

The Clydesdales' visit is a joint effort involving the Mounted Patrol Unit, the Allentown Beverage Company, Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, and the Lehigh Valley Velodrome.
