Elephants in the Streets!

If you got stuck in traffic this afternoon in downtown Louisville, it wasn’t because of an accident—The circus is in town!

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s five Asian elephants paraded through downtown on their way to the KFC Yum! Center.  Crowds lined the streets to get a glimpse of the pachyderms.

The Greatest Show on Earth is in town with its “Dragons” show performing Thursday through Sunday. Ringling Bros. says fans can arrive 90 minutes before show time to see the elephants, and one hour before show time to meet the stars of the circus.  The All-Access Preshow is free to all ticketholders.  It includes interactive experiences like learning juggling and balancing skills.  You can also see one of the elephants paint a picture.
