Blind and partially sighted individuals in York County will have the chance to get up close and personal with the famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses this weekend.

The event, hosted by Lancaster-based nonprofit VisionCorps, will allow attendees to touch the draft horses and ask questions about them, according to a news release.

The event is slated for 9 a.m. Saturday at Flinchbaugh’s Orchard and Farm Market, located at 110 Ducktown Road in Hellam Township.

This is not the first time the blind and low-vision community has had the chance to meet the horses.
