You can get a look at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey elephants Saturday morning when they walk from the train station in downtown Tampa to the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where they will be performing Wednesday through Jan. 6.
The parading pachyderms will unload at 10:30 a.m. and begin a walk at 11 a.m. from the railroad tracks near the corner of Nuccio Parkway and N Nebraska Avenue, next to Union Station. The circus animals will walk west on Cass Street, turn south on Morgan Street, turn east on Channelside Drive, in front of the Forum; turn south on Old Water Street, and parade around the back of the arena to the Animal Open House, where elephants, tigers, acrobats and aerialists will be on hand.
The circus is at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Tickets are $16-$100. For show times and ticket information visit www.ringling.com
