My son is really into LEGOs and he wanted to go to LEGOfest this year. On the night before we decided to go see The Lego Movie. He really liked the movie and I enjoyed it as well. The movie made him even more exited to go to LEGOfest. It’s an event that’s held around the country in different cities. It took place 3 days in Raleigh with 2 sessions per day. Every event was sold out for the weekend. The biggest downfall was the price, it was $20 per ticket. That seems outrageous for a kids event. But it was worth it for my son.
The event started at 9am which meant that we had to leave the house at 6:30am that morning. When we arrived there was a long line at the entrance, but it didn’t take long to get in. The amount of people there was insane. My son didn’t like waiting in the long lines to do things. The LEGO exhibits were very neat. It’s hard to imagine the amount of hours that went into making them. They had everything from full size Star Wars LEGO characters to Toy Story characters (see pictures below.)
My son’s favorite part was getting his picture taken with The Lego Movie characters. He also enjoyed playing in the large pile of LEGOs. We played one of the games where you have 2 minutes to build something with the letter that the instructor chooses. The instructor chose the letter T and my son decided to build a taco. The instructor said she hadn’t seen that one before, lol.
Overall it was a good time. Another Lego thing my son wants to do is visit Legoland in Florida. I’m still debating on that one. Enjoy the pictures below.
