Circus animals parade through Tampa today (MONDAY)
January 3, 2011
At 3 p.m. today , animals in The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will unload at the railroad tracks on the corner of Nuccio Parkway and N. Nebraska Avenue, next to Union Station, for their return to the St. Pete Times Forum to kick off Ringling Bros. Fully Charged! – the 141st edition of The Greatest Show On Earth.
They will walk west on Cass Street, turn south (left) on Morgan St., east (left) on Channelside Drive, in front of the Forum, turn south (right) on Old Water Street, and parade around the back of the arena to the Animal Open House.
This year’s round of big-top entertainment offers acts of daredevilry, superhuman stunts, never-seen-before performances in addition to the usual rubber-nosed dorks and the Human Fuse — the artist formerly known as the human cannonball. Ukrainian strongman duo of Dmitry Nadolinkskiy and Ruslan Gilmulin spin performers and telephone poles that weigh up to half a ton, and The Tian Ye Cheng Toupe performs high flying acrobatics. Beginning 90 minutes before show time, families can get up close to animal performers in the free Animal Open House, and one hour before the show, guests can join on the arena floor for the All Access Pre-show, free to all ticket holders. Show times are 7:30 p.m. with matinee shows Sat. and Sun. Prices range from $15 to $85. St. Pete Times Forum is at 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa.
