Here's the official word on when you should be able to catch the animals of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus actually arrive in Raleigh.
The show comes to town in a 53-car-long steel coach. The animals will be unloaded from the train at 8 p.m. Monday on Hillsborough Street across from Dorton Arena on the N.C. State Fairgrounds. I'm told the best place to see the animal walk is along the road adjacent to the back loading dock of the RBC Center around 8:30 p.m. or so.
As I wrote in an earlier post, this can be a moving target. All times and routes are subject to change without notice.
The all-new show, Barnum's FUNundrum, will offer ten performances at the RBC Center from Wednesday through Sunday. We've got a ticket discount for some of the show. Check this earlier post for more on that.
