Elephants march across the Manchester Bridge

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - It was a rare sight at the James River late Monday night — elephants!

They're in town for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey circus.

The horses were on display as well.

Hundreds of people watched the animals make their way to the Richmond Coliseum where the circus is being held this week.
