At 11PM, the elephants in Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus will be walking through the Midtown Tunnel to Madison Square Garden. Now, we know that elephants are sturdy creatures, but how are they going to fare in the snow? Surely this isn't the first year elephants have needed to traipse through snow to get to Madison Square Garden, but this is the first time Gothamist is thinking about it. Luckily, it seems like they will be okay, as long as they are dried off inside. Director Michel Gondry incoporated the elephant walk into Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (picture above); see it in the trailers. Henry Mancini composed a little ditty, "Baby Elephant Walk," for The Pink Panther.

whatisee is going to try to be there for the walk. If anyone does go, let us know.
