Philly Brick Fest LEGO Convention

LEGO Convention at Philly Brick Fest 2017
As a child, I can remember playing with LEGO building blocks with my brother. He had hundreds upon hundreds of those building blocks and had them all neatly organized by size, shape and color. He would sit for hours at a time building different things and some of the things he built were pretty incredible. I think for most of us, we can remember playing with LEGO'S as a child.

Last weekend we had the opportunity to attend Philly Brick Fest LIVE 2017 which is a LEGO Convention that was held over 4 days. This convention and event attracts thousands of visitors from all over the area. We met people there who were visiting from Florida and another family that made the drive from Chicago, just so they could attend.

The convention features LEGO builders from all over the world! These fans and artists build some of the most incredible things with the LEGO building blocks, things that you just have to see to believe! You'll see huge displays of famous buildings and interactive displays where you and the kids can get involved. Some of the exhibits are on the smaller side, but most are quite large and extensive.

Some of the life-sized models are really incredible to see and they do draw large crowds of fans. What's really cool is that the artists and designers are on-hand and you can ask them questions and listen to their presentations to find out how they came up with the design and how long it took to build it. It's got to be some tedious, and time-consuming work!

You'll find some really huge displays that feature some of your favorite and popular movie characters: Jurassic World, Star Wars and Back to the Future to name just a few.

There is a LEGO gaming area where you can challenge a friend or family member to a fun game and a mini golf course that will surely excite the children...there is a LOT to see and do at Philly Brick Fest! Looking to buy? There are all kinds of different LEGO shopping opportunities!

This was our first time attending a LEGO convention and we had a great time! We would love to visit another Brick Fest next year too! From now through the end of October 2017 you can find the Brick Fest being held in different areas of the country: Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Charlotte, Houston, Sacramento, Austin, Scottsdale, Baltimore and more!

If the convention comes to a location near you, we highly recommend that you take the family and go! It makes for a great afternoon and when planning your visit...I do recommend that you block off at least 2 hours of time, so that you can see and do many of the activities that they have to offer. You can find out more information and obtain their touring schedule by visiting the Brick Fest Live LEGO fan website online.
