The Bendigo LEGO Users Group are preparing for their annual exhibition ‘Bendigo Bricks’ this weekend. Around two hours drive from Melbourne, this show is one of the largest LEGO events in the regional Victoria.
Running from 10 am on the 14th and 15th of April, funds raised from the event will, in part, help support the 1st Bendigo Scout Group send a number of youth members to the Australian Jamboree in South Australia next January.
With over 60 exhibitors attending from around the country, the best travelled model on display has come from the Netherlands.
As well as over 70 tables of exhibits featuring hundreds of thousands of LEGO Bricks, there will be over twenty thousand bricks for visitors to play and build with.
There will be local, as well as international landmarks build from LEGO Bricks. Why not read about the model of the Bendigo Joss House temple in the Bendigo Advertiser here. There will also be models that move and models that amaze!
All exhibitors are volunteering their time to share their love and fascination of what can be done with LEGO Bricks. There will also be the opportunity to purchase examples of LEGO photography, as well as old and new sets.
This is a great example of different groups in the community working to gather to support each other. If you are in the area, why not come and see the show, and help the Bendigo Lego Users Group support the 1st Bendigo Scout Group.
