The Ringling Bros.and Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to town on Christmas, but your family can get a free preview during Clematis by Night. 

The 30 minute show, featuring elephants and acrobats, will happen at the Waterfront Commons at Clematis and Flagler. 

Because of this, there are several road closures, including Flagler drive between Banyan and Datura, which shuts down at 2 p.m.  Stretches of Narcissus avenue and Clematis street will also be closed. 

Clematis by Night runs from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday. 

The show will start at 7 p.m.

Ringling performers and staff will have interactive sessions for the kids starting at 6:15 p.m. After a 20-minute performance, guests can watch an elephant feeding.

The full-length circus runs at the Palm Beach County Convention Center from December 25th through the 29th.
