Ok, just so you know I’m not crazy, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum&Bailey® circus just arrived in Tampa for its Winter Quarters (the time where they start practicing for their world debut at Tampa’s St. Pete Times Forum in January). 

And to celebrate the holidays, the Ringling Bros. world-famous elephants will partake in their own pachyderm Thanksgiving brunch at the Florida State Fairgrounds on Thanksgiving Day!  At 10 a.m. the elephants will feast on bread cornucopias and other Thanksgiving Day provisions. 

Now, if you have never been to a Ringling Bros. elephant brunch before, I highly recommend making your way out to the Fairgrounds on Thursday morning.  This is a sight that you’ll want to see.  As for as Tampa Bay dining goes, this is a meeting of the pachydermy minds that you can't miss!  I have been every year for the past 5 years…and I’ll be out there Thursday too! 

And don’t forget, from Jan. 7-11, 2009, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will present ZING ZANG ZOOMSM, a thrill-filled, mind-blowing circus spectacular where family fun is no illusion.  For show times and ticket information visit www.ringling.com
