Family Day: Carnival of the Elephants at the Bard Graduate Center

The big top isn't the only place in town to get your circus on. Families found that out this past Saturday, January 26, when they kids and their parents made their way to the Bard Graduate Center to take part in the center's Family Day: Carnival of the Elephants event, held in conjunction with the exhibition "Circus and the City: New York, 1793-2010," an exhibit that closes on Sunday, February 3. Kids learned about pachyderms from a zoo expert, watched a puppet show about an elephant who finds work in an NYC circus, made their own shadow puppet and noshed on healthy snacks. See if you can find your child amid the fun by clicking through our slide show.
