Three Acres of Hands-On Educational Fun for All Ages

The LEGO® KidsFest national tour stops at Milwaukee’s Frontier Airlines Center June 15 – 17, 2012, bringing all of the creative hands-on, minds-on fun of LEGO building and experiences together in this three acre activity- and  entertainment-packed family event for children of all ages and builders of all skills and interests.

•         Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.

•         And much more, covering over 150,000 square feet of space

“Any family who likes to be inspired, get hands-on and have fun together won’t want to miss LEGO KidsFest,” said Vince Rubino, LEGO events manager. “We’re bringing so many activities for Milwaukee-area families to test and showcase their creativity and building skills in what is sure to be a family event to remember.”
