Mid-South Fair Doesn't Own Libertyland Carousel


City attorney Sara Hall told the Memphis City Council this morning that the city owns the Libertyland carousel and the Zippin Pippin roller coaster. The MidSouth Fair Board has been trying to sell the two items in recent weeks, but Hall said the city was prepared to file an injunction to stop any further attempt to sell.

The decision represents a substantial victory for the citizen-activist group Save Libertland! which has contended for months that the Fair Board did not own the historically significant carousel and roller coaster.
