Sites in New Orleans ...Town Without a Zipcode...

I'm walking back from the French Quarter to the Riverside Hilton & this long train filled with circus cars travels slowly west. I dig out my camera & start shooting. Should have taken pics of the people stopping & staring just like me. On our way to the airport we saw where they set up tarps & had the elephants tethered outside the NO arena. Looks like the Red Tour came to NO.

New Orleans Arena
New Orleans, LA
Jun 25 - Jun 29

If you are like me & do neither zoos nor the circus here is the
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® online store.

Show & ticket info by state.

The Gold tour LA schedule.

The Red tour will be in KC in Sept.

Blue tour will be in Tulsa, OK in Oct.

Want a job with the circus ? Write to this address in Virginia.

Looks like there was a Mr. Barnum, a Mr. Bailey & 5 Ringling Brothers.

My grandmother lives in Venice, FL. It is near the winter home of the RB B&B circus. As a kid, we made a whole day of it when the circus came home for the winter. It was kind of like a parade. Everyone woud line up on the side of the road w/ chairs & everything. It was fun to watch the people & animals unloading from trucks & trains.
