Arrive early to be at the head of the line!

Lego lovers throughout the northern suburbs are celebrating, as Brick Barossa - a brand new Lego fan event - brings the art of lego construction to town.

If you love lego as much as I do, you probably already have your ticket to the brand new Brick Barossa Lego Fan event being held at St Jakobi Primary School in Lyndoch on the 16th and 17th of July.

The event promises to be a great day out for the family, with lego displays - including remote control monster trucks, mini car racing, EV3 Windstorm robotics, and a huge range of Star Wars lego - food and drink (including my favourite - St Jakobi's hot cinnamon dougnuts), as well as raffles, lucky dip, lego kits for sale, and a free jumpy castle for the kids to enjoy.

Sunday morning features a Sensory Friendly session for families impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorders, and the 8:30 entry session will have low volume music and announcements, and reduced visitor numbers to create a calmer and less sensory overloading atmosphere.

Everyone loves a lego show!

The brainchild of the St Jakobi Lutheran School Parents and Friends Association, Brick Barossa is designed to both be a community focused, family friendly event, and a way to raise much needed funds for the school to help them provide vital equipment and resources for their teachers and students.

Tickets are available online through the Brick Barossa website for just $12 for adults, and $10 for kids 3-17, if your kids are under 3, they get in free!

You can head over to Brick Barossa on the web for more information and to purchase tickets, or you can listen to Kerry Mundt, one of the organisers of the event, telling us more about the event, about what you can see, and about her husband's growing lego collection.
