As a parent it is pretty much a right of passage when we get to post on our social media networks, “Went downstairs to get a drink of water. Didn’t turn the lights on and just stepped on a !#@$% LEGO® brick!”
But regardless of how many times we may step on those bricks and regardless of how many times we threaten to throw them away when we do, we keep them around.. why?? Because we love them just as much as the kids!
LEGO is just one of those things that transcends all generations and that’s why it’s so exciting that the LEGO KidsFest is coming to Portland October 11th through the 13th!
What better way to spend time with your kids than this hands-on LEGO extravaganza! The LEGO KidsFest tour features MILLIONS of LEGO bricks, dozens of life-sized LEGO models and displays, live LEGO Master Builders and tons of other great LEGO fun covering approximately THREE acres of space!
I think I’m most looking forward to the Construction Zones and the gigantic brick pile where the kids and I can get our build on.
Do your kids have a favorite LEGO set? If they do, chances are there will be a special area at KidsFest that features it! My daughter is really into the LEGO Friends so she’s excited to see the area with all the sets and characters.
In addition to these great activities there will also be:
- Creation Nation – where you can 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 you family and friends!
- LEGO Games Arena – roll the dice to play LEGO board games.
- LEGO Retail and KidsFest Marketplace – where you can purchase LEGO merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods.
So, I guess I should get to some logistics about the event. What makes this event so cool is there are a limited amount of tickets available for each session. This means you can’t just show up at any time to get in, chances are the session you arrive for will be sold out. (The event has sold out in years past and across the nation.) Each session offers the same exhibits and activities and there are five sessions total beginning Friday afternoon at 4pm. Tickets are $19 for kids and $21 for adults. Now, before you choke on the price think of the amazing experience this will be! You kids (and you) will get to learn from Master LEGO Builders. This are the folks who create those amazing displays you may have see, you know, like the one of the Statue of Liberty?
