This past weekend we had a great time building LEGO in Olympic Plaza! We had tons of visitors who sought the shade of our tents and built some amazing creations.
We have to give congratulations to the builder above, who actually stuck to the theme and built this impressive bee. Most of us (including the staff) didn’t really adhere to the ‘Natural History’ theme, but there were a few impressive ‘Natural History’ creations amongst all of the other amazing and creative things that people built. Our LEGO expert, Keith Reed, built a bear and a lady bug!
There were many creative uses of LEGO, including 2D pictures, 3D structures, and a LOT of spaceships, pirate ships, cars, and airplanes. We had kids, teenagers, moms, dads, grandparents; we had people from France, India, the UK, and all over the world. Amongst a variety of people, one thing was clear: everyone loves LEGO! One of my favourite moments was when a I over heard a young boy say “Dad, I’m hot, can we go?” His father replied, “Hold on, just let me finish building this.”
Thanks to our LEGO experts, Keith and Jessica, our volunteer Kelly (and also Josh and Lucas), and the Whistler Arts Council, for helping to make our village LEGO event such a success!
We’re getting excited for our LEGO competition on August 25th! Keep an eye out for our upcoming ads and don’t miss this year’s event!
