BrickMagic LEGO Festival 2012

BrickMagic LEGO Festival 2012

The 3rd annual BrickMagic LEGO festival is coming up this May. The public days are Saturday & Sunday May 19-20 at the Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown. Public days are for those who want to come and see what others have built. If you would like to build something for display and come early for a few more special events, you can register as an exhibitor.

I’ve been thrilled to be able to display my creations along with those of the many other talented builders that come. Last year I had the privilege of being able to display several of my larger mosaics in the main entrance hallway. This year it looks like I’ll get to be involved a little bit more hands-on, but I’ll have more information to share about that later.

In the meantime, here are a few more of the details, and be sure to check out the website, too:
