The theme of this year’s contest, FIRST RESPONDERS, OUR REALHEROES, is an opportunity to honor these special heroes with your LEGO creativity. The definition of a hero is an ordinary person who faces extraordinary circumstances and acts with courage, honor and self-sacrifice. No matter where you live, first responders, our real heroes, have been busy making sure you, your family and your friends are staying safe. Recently, first responders of this country have been faced with hurricanes, fires, droughts, mudslides, flooding, severe storms and more. Fireman, policeman, EMT’s, our servicemen and women, K-9 units, and other citizens have sacrificed their own comfort in the face of natural disasters in order to help their neighbors. Brick Blowout will be a day to honor these special heroes through a LEGO exhibit.
Then, on March 17th between noon and 5 pm, bring your family and friend to WACO Air Museum to see a giant city exhibit built by OKI Lug. This Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana Tri State Lego Users Group is a non-profit organization that is over 70 members strong! Check out some of their massive creations at www.OKILUG.com. All local entries will also be displayed. The event will include activities such as a LEGO scavenger hunt, a LEGO building zone with thousands of bricks for building, popcorn and the Batman LEGO movie, a market for those who want to sell gently used LEGO kits, a chance shake hands and say thank you to local police and fireman, a drone demonstration by Sinclair UAS Workforce, photo opportunities with DC Comic heroes, as well as an opportunity to win a classic bi-plane ride for two in “Sunny,” the big yellow WACO airplane!
