Ringling Bros. elephants to parade through downtown

If you're looking to get a free peek at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's largest performers, head to downtown Tampa today.

The annual pachyderm parade is set to start at 10 a.m., when the elephants are unloaded at Union Station and walk the city streets to the Forum.

The circus' new “Legends” production is set to begin a five-day run at the arena on Wednesday.

The walk will begin at the railroad tracks near the corner of Nuccio Parkway and N. Nebraska Avenue. The elephants will walk west on Cass Street, turn south on Morgan Street and walk across the Forum Plaza.

Families are invited to line the parade route and watch the elephants on their walk, a Forum news release said.
