Everything is Awesome! Bricks Killeen LEGO Exhibit Comes to Town This Weekend
Whether you're a master builder, a lover of all things LEGO, or just a kid (big or small) who's looking for something fun to do this weekend, make plans to attend the free Bricks Killeen LEGO exhibit happening this weekend.
Where and When?
This awesome exhibit will be on display at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center, 3601 S W S Young Dr, this Saturday and Sunday, September 18 and 19.
Hours for the 18th are 10 AM to 6 PM.
Hours for the 19th are 10 AM to 4 PM.
Did You Say Free?
Yep! The Killeen Convention and Visitors Bureau has teamed up with Texas LEGO Users Group to make this a free event open to anyone with a love of LEGO!
What's On Display?
Visitors will be able to feast their eyes on some pretty awesome LEGO builds at this event, including:
- A castle built from 25,000 LEGO bricks
- Custom spaceships
- A dinosaur ranch
- A giant treehouse
- A model of Downtown Houston
- Victorian houses
Plus, lots more imaginative builds.
As a tribute to our military community, there'll be special display of military aircraft, including a recreation of Whiskey Pete - the famed World War II aircraft of Killeen native and hero Bob Gray!
You Can Be a Part of the Build
Being around LEGO always makes me want to dig my hands into a pile of bricks and get to building.
The good news is that early visitors to the exhibit this weekend will get to do just that.
Texas LEGO Users Group is looking to build a 10'x10' mural containing 75,000 LEGO bricks. The first 144 people in attendance this weekend will be invited to build a portion of the mural. You'll be given enough bricks for your part of the task, along with detailed instructions.
Building for a Cause
Here's what makes this event even better: Texas Lego Users Group is partnering with Fairy Bricks to help supply LEGO sets to hospitalized children, including patients at McLane’s Children's Hospital in Temple.
