LEGO KidsFest ~ Austin, Texas ~ Aug 31- Sept 2

Do you have any LEGO fans in your house??  All 23 of my kiddos are.  Girls & boys alike LOVE to play with LEGO bricks but even more?  They LOVE to see what can be made out of LEGO bricks.

Lucky for us, LEGO KidsFest is coming to the Austin area in a few short weeks and I have tickets to give a lucky reader! Check out the bottom of the post for more details.

The LEGO KidsFest national tour will be at the Austin Convention Center August 31-Septemebr 2, 2012, 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 for children of all ages and builders of all skills and interests.

Among the many LEGO attractions, families will find:
LEGO Model Gallery: 40 life-sized models made entirely of 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.
 - LEGO DUPLO: younger visitors can explore imagination through building


•         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
•         Brick Pile: a gigantic pile full of LEGO bricks for creative play and enjoyment
•         Monochromatic Builds: bricks of a single color to foster group creativity
•         Brickscapes: fantastic displays that combine lots of LEGO and DUPLO sets
•         LEGO Universe:  become a custom LEGO Minifigure in this multiplayer online game

You can also pick up some LEGO merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods at the LEGO Retail and KidsFest Marketplace.

“Any family who likes to be inspired, get hands-on and have fun together won’t want to miss LEGO KidsFest,” said Vince Rubino, LEGO events manager. “We’re bringing so many activities for Texan families to test and showcase their creativity and building skills in what is sure to be a family event to remember.” 

 Based on sell-out attendance in previous markets, advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged.

Five sessions – all identical – are available for the August 31 – September 2 tour stop.  LEGO KidsFest tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for children and can be purchased online

This sounds so fantastic! I wish we were there so we could enter. Malaysia is opening Asia's first LEGOland next month. You can bet that we'll be paying it a visit soon.
