Pine Rivers LEGO Fan Expo 2014

Only two months left till 7th – 9th June 2014! We are very excited, and busy building some brand new cool displays for you to see.

Tickets are now available for sale through our tickets side.

Photo competition

As the last couple of Expo’s, we will be running our Creative Builder competition. Build your own awesome creation, but rather than handing in your photo at the Expo, a photo of your creations this time have to be submitted by email to photo@brisbricks.org by Saturday 31st May. The winning entries will be displayed at the Expo–how cool is that! And there will be prizes too of course.

Apart from your photo, the email need to provide:

Name
Suburb
Phone Number
Name or description of your creation

Age group:
Under 6
6 – 9 yrs
10 – 12 yrs
13+ yrs

Parental consent is needed for your child’s photo to be displayed, solely for the purposes of this competition.

Also note that your creation should be small enough that it can be transported and displayed at the Expo, should you be the winner of your age group (so no entire towns!).

So get building all LEGO Master Builders out there…

BrisBricks helping out at Ekka 2013

LEGO was nominated as number one in the Top Five things you can only do at the Ekka and judging from the crowds that flocked to the exhibit in The Courier Mail Learning Fun Pavilion they agreed.

Here are some photos from the display put on by Ryan McNaught “The Brickman”

BrisBricks was proud to help out with the exhibit and see some wonderful creations built in the play area over the 10 days.
