LEGO® KIDSFEST Portland: October 11 - 13

LEGO® KIDSFEST Portland: October 11 - 13 
Three Acres of Hands-On Educational Fun for All Ages


LEGO® KidsFest is coming to Portland!
     If you are anything like me, your kids LOVE LEGO®!! All of my kids from the oldest to the youngest play with LEGO® bricks, well maybe not the youngest but as soon as he can hold a LEGO® brick, I have no doubt he will start playing with them. My children could spend hours building with LEGO® bricks. My son loves the Star Wars collection and my daughters love the LEGO® Friends. I played with them as child. I guess it is quite plain to see that our family loves LEGO®.
     I was so excited when I found out that the LEGO® KidsFest was coming to Portland. When I first heard about this event, I knew that my children would love it. They have tons of activities for families to enjoy, including: a Model Gallery, LEGO® Master Builders, construction zones for free play, games arena and a huge brick pile!
