Professional baseball player Chili Davis once said “Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.” That’s why this upcoming event is so exciting to young, old and not old (just slightly over 40-year-olds like myself), who can enjoy a delightful day of brick-building and more at the LEGO KidsFest. This is also exciting news because this is the event’s first appearance in the Southwest! In the middle of a hot summer, what could be better than taking the family to an enormous (air-conditioned) land of fun, imagination and colorful creativity?

LEGO KidsFest truly has all the activities and entertainment that any fan could dream of. Highlights of the event will include a model museum, a master builder academy, a LEGO castle, a challenge zone, creation nation (a giant map of the United States that you can build on), the big brick pile, and art gallery, LEGO marketplace and the list goes on and on. Not to mention activities and displays of the characters that you know and love, like LEGO Friends, LEGO City, Ninjago, LEGO Star Wars, Hero Factory and more.

If this is getting you excited about an amazing family experience, get your tickets today by clicking here.

Don’t miss this opportunity to embrace your inner child at the LEGO KidsFest at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale July 12-14.
