It's time to get clean!!!
March 16, 2014
The Gilmer Fire Department will be honorary elephant bathers when they aid the mighty Carson & Barnes Circus in washing their amazing pachyderms.
The bath time wil be scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Gilmer Civic Center on Monday, March 17.
Jut like humans the Carson & Barnes Circus elephants take daily showers. Although; unlike most of us they really get the royal treatment. They get to lie down and get scrubbed by their loved handlers.
It takes approximately 500 gallons of water and five gallons of soal just to give the elephants their daily bath. The majestic pachyderms are bathed with a special soap that helps clean their naturally tough skin.
Pressured water is used to help them achieve a spa like cleansing! Everyone is invited out to watch this once in a lifetime opportunity to see an elephant bath for FREE!
