9th Annual LEGOPalooza at Morehead Planetarium
Saturday, March 16, 11 am - 4 pm
Sunday, March 17, 1-4 pm
Space stations, Trains, Robots, Castles,
and Much more !! Returning for its NINTH year, this popular exhibit features displays of hundreds of custom LEGO models, created by members of the NC LEGO Users Group.
From the website: "For eight years, the
North Carolina LEGO Users Group (NC-LUG) has created amazing displays of
unique LEGO scenes, from settlements in outer space to hometowns
throughout America (including forts, amusement parks, city landmarks and
more), for Morehead visitors to enjoy during LEGO-palooza.
This year, 2013, marks the 35th anniversary of LEGO's original "castle"
model, so this year's LEGO-palooza will celebrate castles! NC-LUG
members will build a large-scale LEGO castle on site throughout the
weekend. Other castle models will be on display, too. Admission to
the LEGO-palooza exhibit area is free. (There may be brief waits for
admission, to ensure that we do not have more people in the exhibit area
than our building codes permit.)"
