This year one of the event emails I receive regularly included the dates for the circus shows. And that gave me not only a reminder but also the time to determine when the elephants were due to make their trek.
Tonight was the night. It was not the ideal weather to watch the elephants - it is cold here. And it was dark. But we were determined to see the elephants so we bundled up and walked down to Memorial Drive to watch the elephants. We saw elephants:
The lead elephant.
Bringing up the rear.
There was also a duck boat full of clowns, but alas no clown pictures.
It wasn't a fancy parade but it was a lot of fun.
If you're in the Boston area you've got another opportunity to see the elephants. On Sunday at 5 they make the walk back to the train.
