LEGO® KidsFest to Welcome 1,000,000th Visitor in Milwaukee Oct 7-9
Milwaukee to celebrate record-breaking landmark
MILWAUKEE – October 4, 2016 – LEGO® KidsFest, the original and largest LEGO touring event, will welcome its 1,000,000th visitor at its upcoming show in Milwaukee running October 7 through 9 at the Wisconsin Center. Since 2009, LEGO KidsFest has made 40 tour stops across the United States (and one in Canada), averaging more than 25,000 delighted children of all ages at each visit.
LEGO KidsFest includes over three acres and countless LEGO bricks for kids to enjoy. Event Producer Christopher White says, “Our show has continued to grow and develop over the years with many new activities, like our NEXO Knights and Mixels build areas, and returning favorites such as The Big Brick Pile, Creation Nation, and so much more.”
Guests will be able to see and pose for selfies with life-size LEGO models of beloved characters including superheroes, breathtakingly realistic zoo animals, cartoon favorites, and intergalactic visitors.
The Milwaukee tour stop features Dan and Chris Steininger, two of only eight LEGO Master Builders in North America. In addition to being responsible for designing many of the awe-inspiring LEGO models on display, this fun father and son duo will join children in the Master Builder Lab, to teach them how to build stronger, taller, and more creatively with LEGO bricks.
LEGO toys and licensed merchandise will be available for families looking to expand their LEGO collection with an exciting new set or leave with a small souvenir.
