The Savannah Mall will celebrate the circus from Friday, March 27 to Sunday, March 29 with an expansive display of miniature circus models in the lower level Burlington Court. Each model was created by artisans from Circus Model Builders International. The event is free and open to the public.
Organized in 1936, Circus Model Builders International has more than 750 members in the United States, Canada and several other countries. The organization’s mission is to preserve the history and the memories of the circus by building and displaying circus models.
The Savannah Mall display will feature more than a dozen tables with works by members from around the South East, including South Carolina and Coastal Georgia. The intricate models are all made by hand, with each piece taking several weeks to complete. Among the handmade miniature circus models on display will be a 1950 Ringling Brothers menagerie with replicas of wagons, circus animals and more.
“The miniature circus models are works of art that will delight visitors both young and old,” said Savannah Mall General Manager Phil McConnell. “We’re pleased to offer this free event and know that everyone who comes by to view it will leave with a smile on their face.”
