Elephants roam the streets of downtown

A herd of animals, including 10 Asian elephants, 14 horses and 3 ponies are going to be strolling through the Fashion District tomorrow morning at around 4:45 a.m. When they get to the corner of Maple Avenue and 18th street, they’re going to take a bath courtesy of the LA fire department, then head to the Staples Center.

This isn’t India, what are elephants doing walking around town?

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey thought a sunrise animal walk would be a superb introduction to their 2007 Southland production, “Bellobration.” The modern take on circus tradition has the usual favorites: majestic white tigers, high swinging acrobats and charming elephants, but promises to captivate children of all ages with non-stop action and an interactive plot line.

If I didn’t have to be in bed at 4:30 tomorrow morning, the Staples Center is where I would be, for sure!

“Bellobration” will be at the Staples Center from July 18-22. Tickets are $15-$90. www.ringling.com.
