LEGO KidsFest at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi

Kids who love building with Legos at home are in for a treat when this big expo swings into southeast Michigan April 25-27, 2014.

Legos allow kids to get creative, use their imaginations and build just about anything they dream up. Can you picture all the fun your Lego-loving kids would have at LEGO KidsFest, happening at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi April 25-27, 2014?

It's three days jam-packed with fun for the family. Kids of all ages are invited to experience Lego's unlimited possibilities at a variety of special events and activities. Families can head to the LEGO Club and Master Builder Academy to learn all about becoming a better builder.

This year, check out The LEGO Movie, a LEGO Friends Photo Booth and toys with some really cool themes. Who doesn't love Star Wars and Disney Princesses? Swing by the LEGO Model Museum to be dazzled by the life-sized Lego models. And families can all take part in the Challenge Zone. Can your family build what you come up with? Little tykes can get hands-on, too, at the DUPLO Build Area for those 5 and younger.

The list of stuff to do also includes LEGO Super Heroes activities, LEGO Castle, the Brick Battle Zone (are you ready to compete?) and LEGO Mixels (such adventurous creatures!). Jump into a pile of Lego bricks – the biggest loose brick pile you'll see anywhere, organizers promise.

Tickets for some sessions on certain days are already sold out. Be sure to act fast to secure entry to the event. Tickets are $22/adults, $20/kids 3-17 and seniors, free/2 and younger. Event times are as follows:

  • 4-8:30 p.m. Friday, April 25
  • 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26 (session one) – SOLD OUT
  • 3-7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26 (session two) – SOLD OUT
