Finally we have details about when the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to town - and, more importantly, when the elephants are planning their annual walk through Manhattan. For all you pachyderm enthusiasts, get ready to stay up late next Tuesday night:

Unload Stock Cars: 11:30 PM (Tuesday, March 27)
The Walk Begins: 11:59 PM
Time At Tunnel: Approx 12:20 AM (Wednesday morning)

In Manhattan, the elephants will emerge from the north tube of the Queens Midtown Tunnel and proceed along 34th Street to The Garden.

Hoorah! We're not going to think about the 10-day forecast because the weather will probably change the next 7 days.

This year's circus theme is Bellobration - and the circus will be in New York City March 31 through April 15 (here's ticket info). We watched the elephants last year and we love this photograph.
