MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - The circus is back in town.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is making a grand entrance Wednesday afternoon, with a parade on South Beach.

After the parade, they'll hold a sneak peek performance in front of the Clevelander Hotel, featuring the show's majestic elephants, dressed in beach hats and towels, dancers, clowns, a martial arts troupe, and Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson.

The parade and performance will take place between 9th and 11th street on Ocean Drive, from 1-2 p.m. Wednesday.

It's in honor of the circus' newest show Dragons, which will be making its debut to South Florida Jan. 10-21 at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami.

Wednesday's parade is free to the public.
