Trunks And Trucks: Lunch With The Elephants

Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey’s Fully Charged, Gold Edition is in town, and they brought the elephants out for lunch yesterday!

The Cajundome is playing host to the show, and yesterday they held the first ever Trunks and Trucks:  Food Truck Rally and Pachyderm Picnic!  Several of the ‘food trucks’ were in attendance to provide delicious lunches:  Hibachi Hero (the shrimp wrap was awesome), Munchies Lunchbox Express, Kona Ice, Lil’ Chubs and Acadiana Grilled Cheese Co. 

Before the Patty and Duchess made their lunch appearance, the staff at Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey wanted to make sure that we all knew what day it was:


After the camel entertained the kids (yes, the camel was trained), it was time to set up the dinner tables for the elephants:

Elephant Lunch!
Elephant Lunch!
Apples, bananas, lettuce and bread
An open-faced fruit and vegetable sandwich!!

I guess that it is true that if you eat plenty of fruit, you will grow up to be big and strong!! When Patty and Duchess rounded the corner of the Cajundome, they went straight to the table and started to eat!

Patty and Duchess, making a mess!!

After the elephants ‘cleaned their plates’, the kids were allowed to ask questions about the elephants (and some interesting questions were asked:  one was “Are elephants allergic?”!!)

Big thanks to the Cajundome and Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey for hosting the event yesterday, it was a lot of fun!
