Brickworld: LEGO expo coming to Milwaukee

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- LEGO lovers, this is for you! The Brickworld LEGO Exposition is coming to the Wisconsin State Fair Park April 18-19. 

The weekend event -- running Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. -- features LEGO and DUPLO brick stations, LEGO creations, and a Graffiti Wall, where participants can create whatever they like! 

That's not all. Brickworld Expo Milwaukee attendees will get the chance to use a bulldozer to push thousands of LEGO soccer balls around a loop; it's part of the Great Ball Contraption, or GBC. 

A news release on the event said, Brickworld provides LEGO fans a large convention space to explore new ideas and strengthen creative communities in person.

“Brickworld invites fans to take their eyes off of screens and put their hands onto bricks to submerge in the fun of 3D playing and collaboration among friends,” said executive director and Master Builder Mark Larson.

Regarding the recent COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak, a news release says Brickworld is working to keep guests safe and healthy during the event so interactive displays will have hand sanitizer stations available. Signage regarding the best way to keep hands clean will be posted around the hall, including in all restrooms. The maintenance staff will increase the schedule for sanitizing open surfaces. To promote public safety, responses to this developing situation will be updated as needed.
