Elephants parade in American capital city

Elephants parade near White House

It's not something you expect to see - elephants strolling along the streets near to the White House.

But a big group of the animals were out near to the President's home in Washington D.C. They were celebrating the arrival of the circus to the city.

And of course, no elephant parade would be complete without a cleaning truck following closely behind to deal with the mess!

Wonder what the American President, Barack Obama, thought of it all...?
