The LEGO KidsFest took place last weekend in Atlanta, GA’s Cobb Galleria Centre. Children, parents and LEGO enthusiasts came from all over to experience the fun. Each attendee purchased a ticket of admission which allowed for over 4 hours of LEGO discovery!
Once inside the festival, be sure to pick up a brochure. Inside you will find the details of all of the exhibits as well as a floor map. My son wanted to be sure to attend the LEGO Master Builder Academy. To attend, children must get a ticket. Each ticket dictates the time for seeing the show. Later on, we showed up at our specified time for the show and my son enjoyed learning many different tips and tricks only known by the LEGO Master Builders.
Wanting to see everything in the festival, we worked our way around the Centre to see everything! As with so many other popular products, LEGO even offers a Disney line! Here you will see a life-sized LEGO Cinderella available for photos!
One of the larger exhibits is the Creation Nation. Each attendee is invited to take part in adding their own Lego creation to the Creation Nation United States map! All around the map are LEGO bases and LEGO bricks ready for use of any creation imagined. Once you finish your creation, take it to one of the LEGO workers who will place the creation in any free space within the map.
Just like at Downtown Disney’s LEGO store, you will find many great LEGO creations in the LEGO Model Museum. Be sure to take along your camera for taking photos with some of your favorite characters!
The LEGO Kidsfest tickets are about $20 per attendee, depending on the location of the festival. Each ticket allows for 4.5 hours of fun. This was plenty of time to experience all of contests, LEGO builds, free LEGO mini set giveaways, shows and more.
