As the mother of two boys, it should come as no surprise that my boys are HUGE LEGO fanatics, so much so that on Christmas morning it looked like the LEGO store had exploded in my living room. So, knowing this, imagine their excitement when I told them that the LEGO KidsFest national tour was coming to Duke Energy Convention Center March 23 – 25, 2012?!
As you can imagine, they about flipped their lids. They really are big LEGO fans. So much so that we are planning our family vacation to include a trip to Legoland California in August.
LEGO KidsFest is more that just LEGOS, it will feature three acres of LEGO related activities and fun, including :
• LEGO Model Gallery: 40 life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
• LEGO Master Builders: live demonstrations and activities from the crew who get paid to play
• Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
• Race Ramps: build your own custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family
• LEGO Games Arena: roll the dice to play LEGO board games
• Construction Zones: creative free build, play and display areas
• LEGO DUPLO®: younger visitors can explore imagination through building
And much more, covering over 150,000 square feet of space!
The event will be organized into five sessions – all identical – available for the March 23 – 25 tour stop. LEGO KidsFest tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for children, per session, and can be purchased online at www.LEGOKidsFest.com.
The organizers of LEGO KidsFest have given me a discount code to share for $2 off tickets when you order them online between Feb 17 and March 2. Just enter the code – FamilyFriendly12 – during your check out to save!
