Free event will feature tiny model circuses created by members of Circus Model Builders International

(SAVANNAH, GA) 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.
