LEGO Convention Coming To New Orleans
Do you have children who love LEGOs? Maybe you have a husband who loves them?
My husband and three-year-old can play with LEGOs for hours! Seriously, they will sit at the dining room table for hours and build things. If you have a family member who loves LEGOs then this is the perfect event for them to attend.
The popular BrickUniverse LEGO Fan Convention is returning to Louisiana on August 14-15, 2021 at the Pontchartrain Civic and Convention Center. The event will have hundreds of LEGO creations on display along with some other pretty cool attractions.
For this year's event, there will be several changes due to Covid protocols. Among the changes participants will see is that there will be three sessions per day to help with better crowd control. There will also be more LEGO things to see, and fewer things to touch. In addition, there will be larger event spaces so people can practice social distancing.
There will also be renowned professional LEGO artists from around the world that will be showcased at this event. LEGO artists that will be displayed at the convention include San Diego-based Jonathan Lopes, Chicago-based Rocco Buttliere, Dallas-based Lia Chan, and Vancouver-based Paul Hetherington. These artists will be available to meet with fans throughout the weekend.
BrickUniverse Attractions include:
- LEGO City: Massive LEGO City Creations built by top LEGO artists
- LEGO Retail: several specialized merchants selling LEGO merchandise, mini-figures, custom accessories, and goodies
- LEGO Spaceships: Out of this world LEGO Nasa creations built by Lia Chan
- The World in Bricks: Over 50 world landmarks built in LEGO by Rocco Buttliere
