GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - The circus is coming to town, so of course, so does the train and the parade of animals.
A friend of WZZM on Facebook says that as of 12:30pm, the train was nearing Kalamazoo. That puts the train in the Hughart train yard at about 3:00pm.
As of right now, circus officials are estimating that the animal walk will take place around 7:30 or 7:45pm. This is subject to change and we'll have updates as they become available.
The Ringling Bros. Animal Walk will begin near the intersection of Graham and Ionia, heading down Ionia and turning onto Oakes and into the back of Van Andel Arena. The best place to view the walk is along Ionia, and, for safety reasons, the public is asked to stay off of railroad property.
An elephant from the circus will also be out in front of the Van Andel Arena on Wednesday at about 11:30am creating a painting for ArtPrize. The public is welcome to that event.
