Elephants on Parade

By washingtonpost.com

If you're planning to drive in downtown D.C. on March 21, listen up. You could be interrupted by pachyderms walking down the middle of the street. When the circus comes to town, the elephants are offloaded from the train early to walk the rest of the way in. This year, the seven elephants, wearing beaded headdresses, will be accompanied by a donkey on their route to the MCI Center. The elephant handlers walk along, too, wearing street clothes. The walk is scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m., depending on train issues. Check the blog for timing updates on March 21.

That sounds like fun to watch!
My son turns 1 on Monday so maybe I will take him to see the animals.
