Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Elephants Parade Through Downtown


The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey "Fully Charged" circus train came into Orlando Monday, January 10, 2011 and gave an impromptu street show at 7:00pm, parading some of their elephants through the streets of downtown to the new Amway Center. Several white horses followed on the walk.

The animals unloaded at the railroad tracks at the intersection of S. Hughey Ave. and W. Gore St, then travel south on S. Hughey Ave., right onto W. Gore St., right onto S. Division Ave., right onto W. South St., and entered a special tent on the first floor of the GEICO Garage.

The circus runs January 13-17, 2011 for eight performances. Lower level ticket prices start at $25. All seats are reserved, and tickets are available at Ringling.com or Ticketmaster.com, at any Ticketmaster outlet, by calling 800-745-3000, or at the Amway Center box office (phone for information only: 407-440-7900). For group ticket sales and information, call 866-248-8740.

Please educate yourselves before going to the circus.

Let’s teach our children to respect animals by seeing them in their natural states, not as captives forced and beaten into unnatural displays for our entertainment.
When Ringling parades their elephants through the streets, all we see are “Dead elephants walking” because we now know that these elephants are torture trained from birth and the elephants are going through the motions so they won’t be beaten.
