This weekend the city of Crowley once again plays host to the International Rice Festival.

Mr. Herb Schilling is this year's honoree, and the Schilling Distributors icon will not be the only attraction at this year's parade.

In addition to a naming of a Queen on Saturday, the festival will feature the world famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses.

Herb Schilling spoke to Brandon Comeaux and Bernadette Lee of "Acadiana's Morning News" about the impact that the horses have had on the business through the years.

He says that while the Clydesdales travel America, they also travel the world brining their unique American cheerfulness with them.
