Feeling bummed that you didn't head to the beach for Spring Break? You may be happy that you stayed put in the Derby City. This weekend, April 5-7, LEGO KidsFest descends upon the Kentucky Exposition Center, bringing three acres of brick building fun and entertainment to LEGO fanatics of all ages and skill levels.
Excitement for the national tour's stop in Louisville runs high—people who have previously visited LEGO KidsFest in other cities give rave reviews, comparing it to visiting LEGOLand (without the rides) or a giant LEGO store without "just look, don't touch" parental restrictions. Of course, there is a large retail marketplace so the kids will still be begging for bricks. But check out some of the other attractions (included with your admission of $20 for adults and $18 for children):
Tickets typically sell out, despite their high cost. Currently, Friday's session and both of Saturday's sessions have limited availability. Don't wait to buy tickets until you show up at the KY Expo Center; chances are you'll be greeted by a big "SOLD OUT" sign. That would make for a tough ride home with some disappointed kids.
Dates and Sessions:
Friday, April 5: 4-8:30 pm
Saturday, April 6- Session I 9-1:30 pm; Session II 3- 7:30 pm
Sunday, April 7-Session I 9-1:30 pm; Session II 3- 7:30 pm
To purchase tickets, go to www.legokidsfest.com/louisville. Kentucky Exposition Center is at 937 Phillips Lane 40209.
