The Resorts of Dana Point

will showcase dozens of colorfully decorated life-size elephant sculptures as Elephant Parade® makes its much-anticipated domestic debut after stops in London, Singapore, Milan and Amsterdam. The open-air exhibition connects acclaimed artists and celebrities with corporate and community leaders to attract public awareness and support for the world’s most majestic land mammals. In anticipation of the coming of the parade, Capistrano Unified School District held a elephant design contest.

Elephant Parade® is the world’s largest open-air exhibition of life-sized, decorated elephant statues created by local and international artists to generate worldwide attention, public awareness and support for the endangered Asian elephant. To date, Elephant Parade has raised more than $5 million for Asian elephant conservation and approximately 8 million people worldwide have experienced the expositions.

The Elephant Parade will be on exhibit from August 23th through November 17th. (Elephant Parade)
