To start off your BrickFair experience, you’ll want to walk around looking at the hundreds of built sets. There are some true LEGO building experts at this event, and they’ll have their best work out on display. You could spot anything from 15-foot-tall skyscrapers to detailed movie scenes, all made out of tiny, colored bricks.

If you want to add to your LEGO collection, you’re in luck. The expo will feature dozens of vendors selling sets, mini-figures and original products.

Finally, the best part about building with LEGOs is the interactive aspect, so, of course, there will be a variety of hands-on activities for participants to check out.
