Do you mean the welfare moms that normally parade around Crestwood Circle?

Horses and beer...you never see those things in Missouri. We'd better hightail it over there!

I was disgusted. One of the few free family events West Plains has had-and it had to be the Budweiser Clydesdale. The trash of west plains flocked to the free beer and food.

We loved the Clydesdale appearance, and are so happy we were able to see them. They are like royalty! Everyone knows them. Just beautiful. A big thank you to Budweiser and West Plains for letting us see these magnificent animals and of course the Dalmatian and carriage. We did not eat the food there, appeared to be plenty of people who did. We were not there for the food, just the Parade, and so enjoyed it!

Well maybe you should save your money to take your family somewhere that's isn't full of the trash you speak of. You want Disneyland for free? It was the Clydesdales.. It's obvious what they promote. For those who can't afford much I'm sure their kids were thrilled to see those gorgeous horses up close. You'd have to drive to Grants Farm to be able to see them and a lot just can't afford the drive. FYI it's free there too you just pay to park.

Actually I'm pretty sure that the free beer and food wasn't for everyone. It was only for the members of the Southern Hill Center.. like the owners of those stores and such. Just what I was told when I went to get a tea.

Wow, talk about picky. Someone else paid the bill to bring entertainment to West Plains and you are upset? It wasn't free. Someone had to pay for them to come here and it sure wasn't you or anyone else who enjoyed them being here. If you don't like that sort of thing, that is your choice.

And btw, there are lots of free family activities around here, you just have to actually look for them.

Why is it that the majority of people around here want to get so many things for free yet if they are required to do anything, the first question they ask is "how much does it pay"?

It's great how a company can promote alcohol to families with big pretty horses and free food. Maybe they should have also brought vehicles and families that have been destroyed by their product, wouldn't be so cool then though I suppose. I think the drug dealers should also be allowed to have parades and give out free food to promote their product...hell might as well invite Philip Morris along too.

It's not their fault. It's a choice people make. They choose to drink.. I could go out and buy alcohol every day if I wanted to. Do i? NO... Don't blame the company for people who can't control their problems. Personally I think bars should be done away with... but they are here and always will be. People just need to learn to be more responsible.

It's false advertisement....nothing pretty about alcoholism. So if it's not Budweiser's fault but the fault of the alcoholics then I guess it's not the drug dealers fault either, it's the addicts fault. Hell we have it all wrong, don't punish the dealer punish the addicts, they are the ones at fault right?

Exactly. Someone who takes cough syrup and gets behind a wheel can be more impaired than someone who had a beer. Should we boycott the drug companies as well? The poster before you seems a bit simple in their thinking

Well then, under that train of thought we should legalize all mind altering substances and let the people make their own choice. That method is fine with me, I just don't think it's fair that the government picks and chooses which substances we can use, and also tells those companies how they can advertise those substances. The government is the biggest drug dealer in the world and doesn't want competition I suppose.

Didn't say punish the addicts. But educate them maybe. I stand by what I said. It's not the fault of the companies. Pretty sure in all their ad's they say to please drink responsibly. People choose not to.

Oh yeah those ads with half naked chicks running around holding a beer living in some fantasy world. In the real world most chicks don't drink beer, and those guys damn sure aren't paying attention to the useless warnings in small print.

We loved the Clydesdales! It makes us feel good, just to look at them. Thank you again West Plains and Budweiser for allowing us to view them.
