Last Sunday, Rainbow Bricks/Newcastle Brickfest was privileged to be part of another huge Newcastle community event, Beaumont Street Carnivale.

We had a fantastic day with a constant stream of people through our LEGO Fan Area which included a display and LEGO activities for everyone to enjoy.

Thank You to everyone who dropped by our area and said “hi” to us. We love to hear about your experiences with the brick. 😃

The day ended with Mental As Anything providing a fabulous soundtrack for us to pack our area up to. 😃🌈

Rainbow Bricks Presents
MidCoast Brickfest A LEGO Fan Event
DATE: Sunday 24th February

VENUE: Great Lakes College Tuncurry Campus

Rainbow Bricks was excited to returned to the beautiful MidCoast of NSW again for the 4th annual MidCoast Brickfest at Tuncurry-Forster on Sunday February 24th.

Our exhibitors are all volunteers who display for the love of LEGO and being able to support charities and schools at the same time. This family friendly community event supported Hallidays Point Public School.

We had many new exhibit for everyone to enjoy as well as old favorites like the City Layout which had been upgraded since last year.

There were many activities such as the always popular Build Area, the RC Trackers Driving Area and a new tower building activity. Plus the Speed Build Competition were held each hour.

Thank You to all our exhibitors, volunteers and, of course, everyone who visited MidCoast Brickfest yesterday.

We hope everyone had a fun day and enjoyed the LEGO displays and activities.
