Kentucky Brick Expo April 27th & 28th

My husband and I were invited to attend a OKILUG (Ohio,Kentucky, Indiana- LEGO User’s group) meetup last Saturday.

Did you know that there is a group for adults in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana that meets regularly to build with LEGO® bricks?

My biggest observation was that this club is all about community and sharing an interest in LEGO bricks. You don’t have to bring your own LEGO bricks or be extrememly creative to get involved with the club. There is a variety of skill and experience levels amoung the members. They gave us a simple project.

We put together pieces for part of the frozen lake layer for the upcoming show.

 

I first met Rodney, one of the orginal members of the club, with his mom at the LEGO Kidsfest in Louisville, KY. I recognized the logo on their shirts from an event we attended that the OKILUG was involved in.

What’s also really neat is that Rodney started building with LEGO bricks with his mom when he was 7 years old. This has been a shared hobby that has continued over the years.

You might remember some of the group’s creativity from the Shillito’s Elves Display at Newport on the Levee this past Christmas.

 

The OKILUG group is hosting an event that you don’t want to miss!

Here are some additional reasons for why you don’t want to miss the Kentucky Brick Expo!!!!!

*There will be over 5,000 sq. feet of LEGO built by club members. (That’s HUGE!!!!)

*There will be a youth area where kids can build and share ideas.

*There will a toddler area with Duplo blocks to build with.

*There will be a remote control area with a member that lets the fan participate.

*There will be a great display of Star Wars specializing in EWOKS! ( My personal fav from Star Wars)

*Cincinnati Bricks will be there with LEGO collectibles.

 

I’ve been given a family admission of 4 tickets to giveaway to the Expo
