Independence Day Liberty Falls Display - Diana from Las Vegas

Independence Day Liberty Falls Display - Diana from Las Vegas


When Diana from Las Vegas was a child, the Circus always came to town around Independence Day, and she set out to recreate that era in Liberty Falls, proving that Liberty Falls displays don't have to be set up only at Christmas.

In these pictures, taken by her daughter, Dawn, you can see that not only has the Circus come to town, but the Baseball Game, Picnic, Square Dance, and Balloon Ride, Ferris Wheel, Roller Coaster, and other summer pieces have been added to create a Fairgrounds just outside of town.

Downtown the Circus Parade is winding through the streets, letting everyone know the Circus is in town, and it's accompanied by the Marching Band.

A coach drawn by ten horses in five pairs is a testament to Diane's memory of forty-horse coaches, and the Liberty Falls Express is running along the edge of the display.

It all makes for an extraordinary Independence Day, like they used to celebrate it in the old days.

This is stunning! I am a Liberty Falls lover. Love your display!

This is so beautiful. I've never seen any other display of Liberty Falls that remotely compares to yours. How did you prepare the layout? What did you use to simulate the grass, sidewalks, etc.? I don't know what's your expertise, but I think that you could have a little business given people advice to display their collections, especially the ones as large as yours. Thanks for sharing this work of art. Millie
