LEGO building was a favorite pastime when I was a young child. My youngest daughter, L, shares the same love for this great toy. Creativity can go on for hours when it comes to LEGOs. It is one toy that does not need batteries and kids can use their imagination to create all types of buildings. If you have a LEGO fan in your family, you will be so happy about the LEGO KidsFest.
The LEGO KidsFest national tour stops at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC, from February 19 – 21, 2016, for the very first time, bringing all of the creative hands-on, minds-on fun of LEGO building and experiences together in this three acre activity- and entertainment-packed family event.
LEGO KidsFest is for children of all ages and builders of all skills and interests.
Among the many LEGO attractions, families will find:
* LEGO Model Museum: life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
