CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The circus is coming to town... Only a bit later than expected.

Animals from the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus were scheduled to arrive by train on Tuesday evening, sometime after 3:30 p.m.

The exotic animal cargo travels in a 53-car-long steel coach.

A half-mile 'parade' then starts at the parking lot in Sawyer Point and continues through the park to Mehring Way.  

However, the time was pushed back this year until close to midnight, therefore canceling the parade.

Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus will be held at U.S. Bank arena from Wednesday until Sunday.
