This past Saturday afternoon, I took my son, his two older cousins and my father in law to the Lego Brick Fest Live in Charlotte. After waiting eagerly in the line, we took the escalator down and embarked on a journey of never ending Lego’s.
We walked into the Charlotte Conventions Center and our jaws dropped. I mean look at the picture below:
Wall to wall Legos. Blue Legos. White Legos. A wall, literally of Legos. Lego’s everywhere. Here’s a bit of our Lego filled day.
We started off in the Lego Race Car line for what seemed like thirty minutes or so, dreaming, getting ideas, watching others build their race cars. Finally, it was out turn.
All 5 of our cars ready to race
And they are done. And we are ready to race our cars. Here’s a slo-motion video I shot of the race
This race was epic. From left to right in the race, we have my father in law’s car, my son Ethan, my car, P’s car and the L’s car.
After we got off the high of our epic race showdown, we visited the different build your own Lego stations.
One of the things that I personally enjoyed was seeing the creativity of others. It really inspires the young minds of today and takes me back to my childhood where I created masterpieces with my Lego’s. Here are a few pictures of those people that took creativity to a whole new level.
My favorite is the Starry Night. The card on the table said that it took over 42 hours to create. I wasn’t able to get a picture of all of the creations, but as an avid classic rock listener, I really enjoyed with Freddie Mercury 3D artwork. I hate that I didn’t get a picture of it.
As we continued around the carousel of displays our day was drawing to an end, but not before two things happened. We had to buy some Lego’s and we dared to dream big.
