Attention LEGO® fans of all ages: LEGO® KidsFest has Announced Tour Cities and Dates for 2015. The LEGO KidsFest is a traveling LEGOextravaganza featuring millions of LEGO bricks and dozens of hands-on educational and fun building activities for all ages. If you missed it, here is my recap from the Atlanta stop in 2014. One of our favorite aspects of last year’s stop in Atlanta were the dozens of life-sized LEGO models. Covering three acres of space, you will also find LEGO brand building areas,the Big Brick Pile, race ramps and more, all covering three acres of space.
This Giant Family Expo Kicks Off 7th Year of National Tour with stops in:
Phoenix, AZ: Feb. 27 – March 1 (University of Phoenix Stadium)
St. Louis, MO: March 20-22 (America’s Center)
