|Hey! Is that elephants on Capitol Hill?|
While the sparkly, blue-lit elephants were the big hit of the night, they were joined by Chinese acrobats, who will be featured in this year's Asian-themed performances titled "Dragon."
The streets near the Capitol were lined with youngsters who cheered the elephants and squealed with delight as clowns tossed trinkets and candy their way. My wife got excited when she was able to pick up 4 small rings for our 2 grandchildren. But, of course, this being Capitol Hill, only half of the rings worked. There was no word if the Sequester had caused the negative impact on the failed toys.
At the end of the short parade were 2 street sweeping vehicles to take care of any elephant droppings. Now if it were only that easy to clean up the rest of the mess on Capitol Hill.
