Most of us who went to Brickworld in Chicago have recovered from that weekend (special “Hi!” to my new friend Connor the Conductor), and now we’re getting things ready for World War Brick this Friday through Sunday at Brickmania.
Friday is for paid attendees only, but Saturday and Sunday (10am – 4pm both days) will be open to the public. Admission will be $5 for adults, that money helps pay to put on the event, and we think you’ll get your money’s worth. There will be special military-themed exhibits, Will from Brickarms, GI Bricks, and Bullseye Bricks will all be there, and there will be some brand new and exclusive things for sale. Help build a huge mosaic for permanent display, and take home a special free US Marine minifig as a ‘thank you’.
The GMLTC and TCLTC layouts will be running, but the emphasis this weekend is on the military displays. So yes, you can still bring your Lego trains to run on our layout!
Finally, a quick note for July. Our “First Thursday” Open House is on the Fourth of July! We’ll be open for visiting on your way to watch fireworks, we might even break out the charcoal grill for hot dogs and veggie dogs and make a picnic out of it. 5pm – 9pm on the 4th!
