Hey Cleveland!  #LEGOKidsFest is Coming to the CLE November 4 - 6, 2011!

Have you heard, have you heard, have you heard????

LEGO KidsFest is coming to the I-X Center in Cleveland, November 4 - 6, 2011!

Never mind it is 44 days away, my kid is brimming with excitement and I totally get why he is excited!

LEGO KidsFest is a creative, hands-on, activity- and entertainment-packed family event for children of all ages and builders of all skills and interests.

The LEGO KidsFest attractions have a lot of variety and you will certainly find something for every member of the family. Each of the sessions offers the same interactive activities and play areas. No session is better than another to attend.

Some of the activities that might be there are:
• LEGO Model Gallery: 40 life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
• LEGO Master Builders:live demonstrations and activities from the crew who get paid to play
• Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
• Mystery Mural: build a piece of a giant mural to help reveal the image
• Race Ramps: build your own custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family
• LEGO Games Arena: roll the dice to play LEGO board games
• Construction Zones: creative free build, play and display area
• LEGO DUPLO®: younger visitors can explore imagination through building
• LEGO Retail and KidsFest Marketplace: purchase LEGO merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods
• Brick Pile:a gigantic pile full of LEGO bricks for creative play and enjoyment
• Monochomatic Builds: bricks of a single color to foster group creativity
• Brickscapes: fantastic displays that combine lots of LEGO and DUPLO sets
• LEGO Universe: become a custom LEGO Minifigure in this multiplayer online game
