For many children, LEGOs are a playtime staple. The tiny plastic bricks allow imaginations to soar, as kids click one brick onto another to create a car, space ship or perhaps a submarine manned by a pirate mini-figures—or develop elaborate, multihued domains where plastic lives unfold in a complex microcosm of play. Capturing that forever-young aspect of the iconic toy is Brick Fest Live, a three-day celebration of all things LEGO at the Palm Beach County Convention Center from December 5-7. The event is one big LEGO party for all ages, with hands-on activities, elaborate displays made entirely of (you guessed it) mini-bricks and vendors that offer specialized LEGO items, from custom-designed Minifigures and bricks to LED accessories for those building blocks. There is something for everyone, regardless of LEGO dedication. Tickets to Brick Fest Live: LEGO Fan Festival cost $22, which includes entry and a LEGO Premium Minifigure accessory set.

In light of this three-day LEGO party, we want to see how Palm Beach goes LEGO. Show us your best Palm Beach LEGO scenes—from Minifigure sightings and LEGO selfies to elaborate plastic brick mansions—with our latest social media contest, Palm Beach Gone LEGO.
To join the fun, here’s what to do:
- First, follow us on our social platforms: Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook.
- Take and post LEGO photos, tagging them with #PBILEGO.
- On December 29, we will choose our favorite LEGO scene. The winner will score Sunday brunch for two at the International Polo Club Palm Beach’s fieldside pavilion January 18, where they can enjoy breakfast, a coupe of Champagne and a show—the Joe Barry Memorial Cup will be well underway with some serious high-goal action taking place on the pitch.
