A few years ago we took the kids to Pittsburgh for the LEGO® KidsFest event and had SO much fun! If you have kids that love LEGO they’ll flip for this! This year, I’m excited to share on behalf of US Family Guide that the national tour is coming to Harrisburg PA! From April 8-10 you can find 3 acres of hands-on educational fun for everyone (my husband and I loved this as much as the kids!).
The LEGO KidsFest national tour stops at the Harrisburg ,from April 8-10, 2016, for the very first time, bringing all of the creative hands-on, minds-on fun of LEGO building and experiences together in this three acre activity- and entertainment-packed family event. LEGO KidsFest is for children of all ages and builders of all skills and interests.
Among the many LEGO attractions, families will find:

“Our 2016 LEGO KidsFest tour is going to delight both new and returning audiences,” said Vince Rubino, Events Manager for LEGO Systems, Inc. “We’ve still got some favorites on the show floor, like the Big Brick Pile, Creation Nation and the Race Ramps. There are also many new and unique activities designed for building, learning and fun.”
