Circus is coming! When to catch its actual arrival
When the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus comes to town, some fans know that you can actually see the elephants, horses and other animals walking into the RBC Center.Posted — Updated
I've been following the circus and its arrival for a few years now, including at my previous job writing about family events for The N&O. I've never seen the circus train. But this time of year, I always get questions from readers wondering when the arrival is scheduled. (And I welcome them and any other questions, comments, criticisms and, of course, nice thoughts).
Here's what I know about the arrival: It can be a moving target.
Right now, the circus folks tell me the circus and its animals are scheduled to arrive late Monday evening. I should get an actual time as we get closer to Monday. In past years, from what I understand, the arrival has been hours earlier or later than expected. This week, in Columbia, S.C., the train was two hours late.
So that's what I know right now. I'll post something as soon as I get another update.
