Today is the last of day of Denver Brick Fest Live!, and we’ve got the tiny plastic goods.
This LEGO-centric kids’ and geeks’ paradise is on from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Denver Mart, 452 E. 58th Ave.
Brick Fest Live began as a fan event from by a YouTuber named Chad Collins, and now the festival has the full support of the Danish toy brand, according to the Denver Post. Collins began his career as an engineer with Lockheed Martin and says Legos are to thank.
“Brick Fest Live was created to increase awareness of the fact that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are all in play when it comes to LEGO and other construction toys,” Collins wrote on the Brick Fest website. “Even the creative arts, the sometimes forgotten form of education, can be expressed with LEGO.”
This year, the festival offers an array of exciting and intellectually stimulating events, including mini-golf, mascot meet and greets, fan-made lego builds, a make-your-own car racing event, among others.
