Everyone played with Lego when they were growing up and let’s face it, when an adult is presented with a pile of these tiny rainbow-coloured blocks, it doesn’t take very long before the “big kid” is sneaking pieces away from the little ones.
The Whistler Museum and Whistler Is Awesome are excited to announce their first ever LEGO building competition for adults. Up to twenty adult competitors will piece together their masterpiece best representing the theme, “Off Season? What off season!?” for the glory of reigning as Whistler’s master builder of this iconic children’s toy.
“Autumn is the perfect time of year for an event like this,” says Alix MacKay, Whistler Museum Manager of Education and Marketing. “All of Whistler’s locals are coming out and reconnecting with their friends and neighbours after a busy summer so throwing some LEGO connecting in there as well seemed like a perfect fit!
Interested adult LEGO competitors need to sign up through the Whistler Museum by Tuesday, October 11 by calling 604-932-2019. Entry to compete is $10 while spectators are welcome to join in the party and cast their votes for the winning submission for a suggested donation of $5.
There will be a cash bar and everyone is welcome to mix, mingle and explore the Whistler Museum. Big thanks to event partners Whistler Blackcomb, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub, Scandinave Spa Whistler, Rocky Mountain Soap Co., Purebread Whistler and Prior Snowboards for donating some great door prizes as well as booty for first, second and third place.
