The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is in Grand Rapids at Van Andel Arena this weekend.

Many look forward to the animal walk from the circus train to the arena each year.

This year, there will be no animal walk in Grand Rapids.

The announcement was just made this afternoon.

There will be no animal walk due to "unforeseeable track circumstances".
