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.
