Brickfête - July 28-31, 2011
Assembly Hall, Toronto, Ontario
Ontario Brick Builders hosted the first Canadian LEGO adult fan festival in a beautiful historic location on the shores on Lake Ontario. Jeff, Jude and Deborah headed west to join in the "old school" fun of this awesome celebration of our favourite brick building toy. Three and a half days of non-stop LEGO goodness included contests, challenges, an auction and of course a gigantic collection of LEGO creations. Saturday the event was open to the public and people from far and near gazed upon our collective works. Plans are already underway for Brickfête 2012 and will be posted at www.brickfete.com soon. Other photos from the event can be found in the Brickfête flickr pool.
