Ringling Brothers And Barnum And Bailey Circus

Recommended Posts

Guest DC Government Worker

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus is in town, and the stars of the show -- the elephants -- will march on Capitol Hill Monday afternoon.

Once the animals unload at Union Station, they'll take a leisurely stroll to the MCI Center, where the circus is being held. The animal walk is set for 1:30 p.m.

 

The animals are set to walk the following route:

 

 

32nd and D Streets, SE

Minnesota Avenue

E. Capitol Street, NE, over the Young Bridge

C Street, NE

Massachusetts Avenue, NE

Columbus Circle, Union Station

Louisiana Avenue, NW

Constitution Avenue in front of U.S. Capitol on the Senate side

3rd Street to G Street, NW to the loading dock at MCI Center

The elephants won't be alone this year, a donkey will take the walk as well to celebrate the nonpartisan event of the circus and the spirit of the Nation's Capital.

 

The "greatest show on earth" is at MCI from March 24 through March 28.

 

It then moves to the Patriot Center at George Mason University in Fairfax from March 30 to April 3, then returns to D.C. for shows at the D.C. Armory April 6 through April 17.

Your Website says that the circus will be at the DC Armory April 6-17, but the Armory says that is not the case. I would like to go to the circus April 12. Where will you be?
