Minneapolis Lego KidsFest Giveaway!

May 5, 2011

For those of my blog readers in the Minneapolis area – I have a great giveaway!  The LEGO KidsFest is coming to town from May 20-22nd, and I have tickets!! I’m so excited to go –  my son loves lego’s and our nephew also loves legos – So we’re finding a babysitter for Ethan and taking Andrew and Jason to LEGO KidsFest!

LEGO KidsFest is a huge LEGO Expo with endless interactive activities and 150,000+ sq. feet of space, so the experience will be very different from what LEGO fans might have seen at LEGOLAND and the LEGO Retail Store in the Mall of America.

We’re really excited for all the great activities that are going to happen. There is something for every member of the family!

And there’s much much more!! It’ll be a great time.  They are selling tickets for specific sessions.  So when you purchase tickets you will have a five hour window to be there – but by no means have to stay through the entire five hours. This will cut down on the amount of traffic at specific times, so that everyone can be sure to have some fun!

LEGO KidsFest is holding a giveaway for 1 pair of tickets to Sunday, Session II on May 22nd from 3-8pm. Please do not sign up unless if you are available during that time, as these tickets cannot be changed for another session.
