legotourbrickpitSo guess where we’re going to be this weekend.

The LEGO Imagine Nation Tour is making its first stop in Toronto for three days October 14-16, 2016 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

It’s basically our basement x one trillion and my two little LEGO fans will likely never want to come home.

Imagine: 15 pavilions, a Brick Pit, 20 life-sized LEGO models, a LEGO bridge building competition, a chance to build with one of only eight LEGO Master Model Builders in the world, LEGO video games and a cool digital activity where you build your fave NINJAGO™, Elves or Friends-themed model and scan it into 60-second game experience.

It is an all-ages event so lots for the littlest and oldest LEGO fans.
