Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus comes to Brooklyn on March 20 and naturally the elephants will be parading through DUMBO before the show opens at the Barclays Center, the NY Daily News reports.
Gothamist provides more details: "The elephant walk for Brooklyn... is going to be
an Elephant Dance Party with the elephants and performers, as well as
Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz." (OMG it's just like my dream...)
The party will take place under
the Brooklyn Bridge (at Old Fulton and Furman, with street closures on Water, Main and Front streets) on Wednesday at 11 a.m.
The DUMBO event will also showcase performers
from Ringling Bros. — including basketball unicyclists, King Charles
Troupe and Ringling Bros. clowns.
UPDATE: Don't worry, elephant fans -- The event will also include protesters from PETA and other animal rights groups drawing attention to what they say is abusive treatment of the elephants used by the circus.
