SHOW REVIEW - Brickfest at the Bay 2018

January 11th, 2018

BRICKFEST AT THE BAY 2018
A LEGO FAN EVENT

The weekend and the event were a great success despite the heat! Thank you to everyone who braved the heat especially on the Sunday.

This year the proceeds from the event supported the Tomaree High Robotics Team.

There were lots of new exhibits and lots for the family to do. We had exhibitors from across NSW displaying their amazing creations as well as some old favourites like the LEGO City Layout.

We had lots of activities for the children to enjoy. The Build Area was popular across the weekend. As well as the remote control Trackers which the children got to drive.

Plus the Speed Build Competition which was full every time we ran it. It was so popular we had to run it twice on a number of occasions.

The Action Club ran the BBQ and drinks and they support local community projects.

Tell your friends and family and we look forward to seeing you at Brickfest at The Bay in 2019.

DATES: Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th January 2018.
NEW VENUE: Anna Bay Public School, 191 Gan Gan Road, Anna Bay NSW 2316

Here are some photos from the event for you to enjoy.

REVIEW: MidCoast Brickfest 2018

March 9th, 2018

Thank You to everyone who came along to Rainbow Bricks' event MidCoast Brickfest on Sunday. It was a great success with the profits going to the hard working Halliday’s Point Public School P&C.

Around 2000 visitors came through the doors to see that the builders had brought to display. The children were also treated to a free build area and a Speed Build Competition which was very popular!

Of course the event would also not be possible without the exhibitors and their wonderful creations. None of the exhibitors are paid they are all volunteers donating their time and energy to help out the event charities/schools.

We hope you enjoyed the day. Tell us which you enjoyed the most was it the exhibits, the Build Area or the Speed Build Competition. Did you go home and build? :-)

We look forward to seeing you again.

LEGO CITY 60171 Mountain Fugitives: Creative Activity

February 21st, 2018

CREATIVE ACTIVITY

Over the last few weeks Rainbow Bricks members have been having fun with LEGO City set 60171 Mountain Fugitives.
There are some nice new parts in this particular set plus it’s not too expensive if you wanted to do something similar. Kmart and Big W sell it for $10.

The guidelines for this challenge were:
Only use the pieces from this set
Only 1 set per build.
You can build whatever you like using as many or as little of the pieces as you like.
And remember, have FUN with your creations!

Here are the results. Some tell a story while others built an item. It's not as easy as you think when only have parts from one set. 😊
Jump to the full story to see the pictures of the members creations.
