Elephants fill streets in downtown Tucson

Posted: Updated:

The circus is in town.

If you were downtown Monday you probably noticed a couple road blocks, circus elephants dominating both sides of the road on Pennington street.

Folks were stopping on the sidewalks to grab pictures of the elephants and pics of themselves with the elephants.

Elana Rodriguez brought out her boys who were getting a little restless as you could hear Others like Jennifer Ruiz have never been this close to animals this big, "Well I think they're going to be like really huge and I've never seen them that close."

And they were big, even the small one.

The Greatest Show on earth will kick off Wednesday night at the Tucson Convention Center.  The circus will be at the TCC until July 4th.
