'Brick Fest Live' Welcomes LEGO Maniacs

Do you remember the TV commercials from the '80s featuring "Zack the LEGO Maniac?" He's probably in his 40s now but Zack might still be obsessed with those building blocks of so many of our childhoods. If you have your own LEGO maniacs at home, you'll have to make plans to be at Brick Fest Live, coming to the Charlotte Convention Center on June 3rd and 4th.

Billed as the largest touring LEGO fan experience, Brick Fest Live promises to inspire, educate, and entertain LEGO-loving families with tens of thousands of square feet of LEGO fun, including jaw-dropping creations from all over the world made entirely of the timeless toy. The event was created in part to encourage science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills in the next generation of artists, engineers, and leaders.
