WHAT: Spanning over three centuries, cities across America have waited
in anticipation for the arrival of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.
The mile-long Ringling Bros.® circus train continues to criss-cross the
country each year and now makes a stop in Boston to provide families and
Children Of All Ages with a live, interactive circus experience that is
sure to create lifetime memories. Some of the biggest stars at Ringling
Bros. – our four-legged performers – will be making their way
through the streets of Boston on Tuesday, October 13.

The Ringling Bros. Animal Walk heralds the arrival of the all new
production of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, which is sure to take
families ‘Over the Top!.’ As the animals make their way to the TD
Garden, everyone in Boston will have a chance to see this magnificent
menagerie up close. Featured in the Ringling Bros. and Animal Walk will
be the pachyderm performers – including Asian elephants born at the
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation®, a
200-acre facility dedicated to the reproduction, research and retirement
of the endangered Asian elephant.
