We Checked Out Brick Fest Live For The First Time

Hey Cuties,

Last weekend the family and I got up early on Saturday morning and headed to Brick Fest Live in Baltimore, Maryland. This was our first time going although it was a perfect fit. Babe and the kids are big Lego fans. This was a total win for me, the boys had a father-son Bromance happening and I think they forgot about us girls for a minute.

We received complimentary tickets to attend the Brick Fest Live. All thoughts and opinions are blah blah blah.

I didn’t do any pre-gaming prior to the event so we had no idea what to expect. Babe is a Morganite (Morgan State Alum) so he knew exactly how to get to the Maryland State Fairground.  The kids and I had never been, we fed some goats before going in.

This Brick Crafts mobile was tricked all the way out. I bet kids go crazy when they see it driving down the street.

Peep the Lego vehicle tag and custom plate. I respect a legit branding game.

They had hundreds of Lego people you could buy. They had traditional characters you might see in your favorites sets and or movies. They also had Lego’s in funny costumes and characters inspired by other things.

The Lego wall was a hit with LittleCuteLips. They had buckets of Legos and you could make anything but most of the kids made their name. LittleCuteLips did the same thing.

They had massive Lego structures and they were incredible. This bank robbery scene was extremely detailed.  You can do and make anything with Legos. The back had an atrium view of the building with just as much detail.

The Manchild is a big Star Wars fan so we had to snap a picture. LittleCuteLips was afraid of R2D2 so I had to jump in and “protect” her while Babe snapped the picture. R2D2 was cool, he was rolling around the place and everything.

This was a room filled with glow in the dark Legos that are black light reactive. This is a dope a picture of the music group Daft Punk.

This was a Glow in the Dark/Black Light station. They had massive amounts of Legos and you had to build your own creation. Once built you place it under the black light and watch your creation glow. The flat space ship looking design in the front was done by the ManChild. The claw looking design in the middle behind it was made by LittleCuteLips. The design on the right with the satellites was mine and the simple design on the far left was done by Babe.

Brick Fest Live had massive Lego creations that attendees could help assemble. The creations were being submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records. We the four of us can officially say we are a part of history even though only the three of us appear in this picture. Babe was on the other side looking for more black Legos.  They have you a laminated sheet with the design on it and you had to duplicate it. LittleCuteLips and I did one together.

This was the finished products of Star Wars Darth Vader.

The Meeper demonstration was cool. They had programmable Lego Robots that you could play with. The Manchild is big into STEM and coding so he was really interested.

We came we saw, we had a good time and LittleCuteLips got her face painted like Frozen. Brick Fest Live is going to be an annual activity. Don’t worry, I haven’t spoiled it for you. There is so much more to do that I haven’t shared.

I got the Manchild this hat from Brick Fest, I had to admit it was cool.  The brim is removable so you can slide it off and rock it as a regular hat. The backplate is connected with Velcro. I had him decorate it so you could get the full visual. I appreciate his creativity.

    Can you believe we do NOT have ANY Legos in our house? Outside of my Lego keychain of Wonder Woman and Emmet. I’m so scared that my children will have my focus on things that they love, and we’ll be covering the front of our house with a new face of bricks. But lowkey, I LOVE Legos and love seeing them play with them during events.

  2. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    That looks so amazing! My kids would love Brick Fest. Heck, I would love it. We’re a huge LEGO family here.

  3. Danielle

    That sounds like so much fun. There is no better toy than LEGOs. They promote so much creativity and an interest in engineering. It really is a great way for kids to play.

  4. Jeanette

    I wish we had that here I would love to take my kiddo to that. That looks like so much fun and my kiddos favorite thing right now is Legos.

  5. Sheena Steward

    This looked like so much fun. The lego hat though lol. I loved it! You guys always have so much fun and make it look amazing.

  6. Joely Smith

    I love the glow in the dark legos!! The figures are affordable too – that’s nice! Usually things are so expensive at these events. This looks like such a fun time!

      Tthey had a markup for sure because I was comparing them to the prices at Target while I was there. It wasn’t more than $5 so it wasn’t terrible. The kids certainly want it right here right now.

  7. Tisha

    I love that you always find fun activities for the WHOLE family! It’s refreshing to see in this day and age!

  8. Marysa

    This would be such a fun event to attend! What a dream for a LEGO lover, or even if you aren’t, it still sounds cool to check out. What a neat opportunity, thanks for sharing.

  9. Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place

    My two boys will go crazy over this event! I’m pretty sure they’re going to enjoy every single activity that’s available! It’s pretty amazing.

  10. Ruth I.

    Reminds me of childhood, who says only boys could play this right? You can do either crazy or creative stuff. I thought that Ford is made of bricks too lol.

  11. Victoria Heckstall

    Wow!! It looks like you are having a ton of fun there in a brick festival. Lots of lego collection you can buy. I hope I was there with my loving kids. I am so jealous.

  12. Melissa Dixon

    Wow I have never heard of this before but it sure sounds like a lot of fun! I would love to attend this event!

  13. Kathy

    That looks like a lot of fun. This is something my family would really enjoy as well. It would be fun to be able to go there sometime.

  14. danasia fantastic

    It looks like you and your family had a fun time! Seems like it was a great event.

  15. Ashleigh

    Your family is so cute and it looks like yall had a great time! Love the lego hat lol

  16. Tiffany H.

    I think my favorite would be the light up Legos, who doesn’t love all things glow in the dark. The lego hat was super cool, I like how you could change up the hat by simply making a new layout on the hats. Great even that seep to keep all ages interested.

  17. Amanda

    My kids are SUPER into Legos lately so they would love to attend Brick Fest. I have to check and see if it is coming to Chicago.

  18. Carissa

    Every year we say we are going to go to Lego Fest and we haven’t been yet, it always looks like a good time. Well, I guess next time it comes to Cleveland we will try to go! You all look like you had a great time! And I love the facepaint!

  19. Kita

    Oh the injuries I have sustained because of all the bricks in our house. My son would love to go to this.

  20. Aduke Schulist

    The little characters are so cute, but I swear I’m the worst mom. I hate Legos and don’t let my kids play with them.

  21. EG III

    It must be festival season. I must say, this looks like a great event for family fun. I hated legos as a kid but I think my daughter would love something like this.

  22. Joyce Brewer

    Our son would love this. He’s a Lego fanatic.
    Thankfully we have a Legoland Discovery Center here in Atlanta he can visit when he needs a “fix.”

  23. Ave

    Looks like you had an amazing time! I really like all those different Lego people and the glow in the dark Lego is super cool too! The hat looks super fun!

  24. Tione

    Growing up I had fun with my building blocks. I use to create different kinds of animals with my Legos. It was fun back then.

  25. Crystal Lewis

    I saw your posts on FB about it and was bummed I missed out. I never knew about it and saw a few other friends went. My daughter loves all things legos and would have loved this event.

  26. Bianca Dottin

    This looks like something that my daughter would love! I think we might have something similar at the Legoland here. I’m definitely going to have to look into it because your husband even looks like he had fun.

  27. Kiwi

    When I have a family I am definitely gonna roll like you! Your family likes to have fun as a unit and this Brick Fest live seemed so engaging and entertaining!
