You can meet the Budweiser Clydesdales in Gwinnett on Thursday

Whoa, nelly! 

The Budweiser Clydesdales have made it safely to Gwinnett County — and you don't have to wait until their appearance at the Lawrenceville Christmas parade to see them.

The city of Lawrenceville took to Facebook on Monday afternoon to announce the iconic equines' arrival at an undisclosed location, providing visual proof that their on-again, off-again relationship was a thing of the past.  And while the horses will indeed cap off the county seat's first-ever holiday parade on Friday night, they'll be making another appearance too.

From 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, they'll be down the road at Beverage SuperStore of Grayson.

The package store is at 2265 Loganville Highway in Grayson. The festivities are free (though the wine tasting mentioned in the above Facebook post is $20) and kids are welcome.

As far as Lawrenceville's much-anticipated parade goes: The city originally announced Oct. 6 that the Clydesdales were coming. About three weeks later, they delivered the bad news that a scheduling conflict had forced the horses to back out. But on Nov. 17, the city and Anheuser-Busch announced that the horses' appearance was back on.

The parade will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, running down Perry Street along the downtown Lawrenceville square, east on Crogan Street and south on Chestnut Street. In addition to the Clydesdales, it will feature Santa Claus, more than 40 community floats and "Christmas activities" on the square.

Below are several photos of the Clydesdales' arrival in Gwinnett, via the city of Lawrenceville's Facebook page.
