*CLOSED* Summer Sweeps: BrickFair Tickets

*THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED* Congrats to Heather M. & Brandy who both won (it turns out I will not be able to attend, so I randomly chose 2 winners).

If you’re an 80’s child like me, then you remember the catchy jingle “Zack, Zack, he’s a LEGO maniac”….

Are you a LEGO-maniac too?

Then get ready, because next Sat. Aug. 4th  & Sun. Aug. 5th, 2012 from 11am – 4pm you can visit the annual BrickFair at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA!

LEGO models, displays and winding trains sprawled out over 100,000 square feet. BrickFair brings together adult fans of LEGO from across the USA (and Canada, and a few other countries) to show off their projects, great and small, and to share their passion for LEGO – the most awesome toy – ever.

The organizers recommend allowing 90 minutes or more to enjoy the show, so please plan accordingly. Doors close at 4pm and the expo is vacated at 4:30pm. Please note, the BrickFair is primarily a look-don’t-touch event.  But they’ll have some interactive displays and stay & play areas. You can read more about this annual event on BrickFair’s website.

If you’re interested in attending this fun event, it’s $10.00 per person at the door (no advance ticket sales). Children 3 and under are free.
