Brick-or-Treat at Legoland

After traveling more than 2,800 miles from New York City’s Times Square, the world’s largest LEGO® model is now on display at LEGOLAND® California Resort. The life-size LEGO® Star Wars™ X-wing starfighter weighs more than 45,000 pounds and is created from five million LEGO bricks, the massive model arrived in six freight trucks which hauled the 1:1 replica X-wing model across the country. The X-wing is 11 feet tall, stretches 43 feet long and has a wingspan of 44 feet.

If you're not into Lego, you'll never understand why we keep returning to LEGOLAND. If you've got young boys, there is no need to explain. For two years now, our dinner table has been covered with Legos. Nightly dinners are arranged around the bricks and mini-figures including ninjas, Batman, Star Wars clones, and hundreds of others.

LEGOLAND's annual Halloween Bash, a.k.a. Brick-or-Treat, draws trick-or-treaters from all over Southern California. Kids dress in costumes, line up for treats -- and of course there are Legos!  Alex and his best buddy Cole decided they would do anything to win the dance competition. They showed off their moves & their groves, and got picked from hundreds of kids to jam on the big stage. Both boys won the big prize -- free tickets for a return trip to LEGOLAND!
