They may have arrived a tad later than expected, but when the elephants from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus finally did begin their march down Broad Street in Newark last night, they dd not disappoint.

In fact, the pachyderms who jogged down Broad left one woman momentarily speechless.
“They’re just so …..,” said Newark resident Cheryl Coxson, turning to her friend, Rin McLaughlin.
“Amazing,” Coxson finally decided. “They’re amazing.”
Coxson and McLaughlin were among the few small knots of people lining Broad Street last night to await the “pachyderm parade,” which began near a rail yard in the eastern part of the city, continued up South Street and then through the heart of Newark along Broad to the Prudential Center. Performances will be held there March 1-4.
