There will be a LEGO Convention held on Mother’s Day weekend (May 6th-9th, 2010) in NE Raleigh. This event is what came of the “BrickJournal Con” idea you may have heard tossed around at recent NCLUG events – as such, it’s a bit more than a standard Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOL) convention. Among the additions to the usual AFOL convention fare are a competition between FIRST LEGO League teams and a build event with Nathan Sawaya. The best source for information on this event is the official BrickMagic website.
This event is guaranteed fun for the whole family – and Moms get in free on Mother’s Day!
NCLUG will be represented by several displays, some of which will be fresh for this event and some of which will reprise previous ideas from LEGOPalooza 2010 and BrickFair 2009. Although this isn’t just our event (and we’re all excited about the breadth of this event and how it will appeal to a wider portion of the public), we’re looking forward to anchoring the displays as the regional LUG for the area.
