The Budweiser Clydesdales, Stars & Stripes Celebration and the Classic Car Show headline a jam-packed weekend of events at Monmouth Park.

            On Saturday, the Stars & Stripes Celebration featuring the Budweiser Clydesdales return to Monmouth Park for the first time in years.

            The Clydesdales will parade down the track starting at the top of the stretch after race 3, approximately at 2 p.m. They will then proceed through the bus lot to the festival area where they will stand for photos for roughly 90 minutes under the trees on the grass.

            Once finished, they will parade back down the stretch and stop in front of the winners circle for a presentation.

            On the track, the day of racing will be headlined by the $100,000 Long Branch Stakes, the final chance for an invite to the $1 million betfair.com Haskell Invitational.

            On Sunday, it’s Oldies Day at Monmouth Park with the Classic Car Show. The Cameo’s, New Jersey’s Favorite Oldies Group, will be playing live from 12-3 p.m. There will be live swing dancing performances as well as free lessons throughout the day. Big Joe Henry will broadcast live his NJ 101.5 FM Jersey’s Favorite Hits show “On the Green.”

            Also on Sunday, patrons can enjoy Family Fun Day featuring pony rides, face painters and bounce house.

            Gates open each day at 11:30 a.m. with first post scheduled for 12:50 p.m.
