York residents were treated to a special parade by the Budweiser Clydesdales in celebration of Flag Day on Wednesday. 


An eight-horse team of the iconic Clydesdales paraded through York City as spectators waved American flags and snapped pictures with their smartphones.

The parade included police and fire vehicles from York City and made a stop in front of the York City Police Department. Chief David Michaels of York City Fire and Rescue and York City Police Capt. Steven Butler were presented horseshoes to honor local first responders.
