Legos on Vacation at the Brickation!

standard July 30, 2012 84 responses

You know what the best part of summer vacation turns out to be? Those long afternoons with nowhere to be and nothing to get done. Mommy has no deadlines. Daddy is on vacation. As for the kids? They’re just begging to be entertained.

And what better way to entertain the whole family than with a nice big bucket of Legos?

OK, maybe an afternoon eating ice cream trumps that, but now we’re just being nit-picky.

I’m not the only one who thinks that Legos and summer vacation are a match made in heaven. Lego themselves agrees with me and has planned a few fun events around the country around the Summer Brickation theme.

If you’re a lucky Bay Area resident who happens to be heading up to Lake Tahoe to soak in some rays and some sights this summer or you’re a resident of the gorgeous lake, you’re in luck. One of the Lego Brickation events is taking place at the Heavenly Village all summer long through September 4th.

A few more details as per the Heavenly Village:

Shop #8 (on Highway 5) 10-8pm. Open 7 days a week thru September 4. The LEGO Summer Brickation will showcase the best of what the LEGO group has to offer. It will enable children and adults to benefit from a fun, hands-on experience of building and creating LEGO bricks and products. Different activity areas will be featured, providing families enjoyment in everything from building, games and challenges, to photo opportunities with life size LEGO models. Activity areas will include DUPLO® Boat, Build Tables, Creation Station, Race Ramps and LEGO Challenge Zone. Other notable experiences offered will be a LEGO South Lake Tahoe Mosaic, along with Life Size LEGO Models and a LEGO Cityscape.

Sounds like fun, right? Bummer we weren’t in Tahoe quite long enough to make it to the South Shore! That’s ok though, I think we have enough Lego bricks right here at home to attempt our own lake view reproduction!
