Philly Brick Fest LEGO Fan Festival

Media Title

With over 70,000 square feet of creations and interactive activities, the Philly Brick Fest—a celebration of all that can be constructed with LEGO—looks to be an explosion of imagination through the medium of those pegged plastic blocks. “The idea behind the event,” says Chad Collins, its organizer, “is to give fire to the youngest LEGO builders. As a parent, you see the potential, and you see it unlock something in your child’s brain that helps in engineering and helps them in math and science.”

Firing up young minds with LEGO is something about which Collins knows a great deal. Not long after he gave his daughter her first LEGO set, she became so enamored with the toy, she requested her own YouTube channel to talk about them. Your Creative Friends, the show the two of them do together, currently has over 16,000 subscribers. But most importantly, it plugged Collins into the LEGO building community that made Philly Brick Fest possible.

Immense LEGO displays that portray scenes of our city, the Liberty Bell and the Love Park sculpture will be featured, as will a Brick Fest Derby, where you can build your own derby car and race it down the 20-lane, 35-feet-long track. The Brick Fest Theater will show LEGO animated videos and present The Brick Show trivia game. And most importantly, there will be a “free-build” area, with tens of thousands of LEGO bricks ready to be played with by inventive kids of every age. // JARED AXELROD
