LEGO Creativity Tour makes first ever stop in Biloxi this December

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Most of us have played with LEGO bricks at some point in our lives, but have you ever walked into rooms full of LEGO bricks? You'll get to, during the Lego Creativity Tour coming to South Mississippi this December, according to LEGO officials.

LEGO held a press conference at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center in Biloxi Tuesday afternoon. They said Biloxi will be the first of eight stops for the new creativity tour, which is a tour tailored for smaller markets.

The three day family friendly interactive LEGO experience begins December 5 through the 7. LEGO officials say they expect 24,000 people to attend the event.

 "Since we began the LEGO KidsFest five years ago, we have been flooded with requests to visit more cities and regions across the country, but they don't all have the space to host a KidsFest," said Vince Rubino, senior events manager at LEGO Systems, Inc. "The LEGO Creativity Tour leverages some of the best of the LEGO KidsFest experience in a more flexible format to enable us to visit with even more families with an interactive, hands-on LEGO celebration."

The event features master LEGO brick builders, LEGO museum, race ramps, challenge zone, construction zone, and much more. This is a family friendly even that is an immersive interactive experience for the entire family.  

"It's a new program that we're launching--the creativity tour. It enables us to come to markets that don't have a facility large enough to handle out KidsFest Tour, which takes about 180,000 square feet. So we're creating this next tour so we can come to markets that don't have that size facility. That have fervent LEGO fans that want to enjoy it as well," said Rubino.

Show sessions on Friday, December 5 are 1:30-4:30 p.m. and 5:30-8:30 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7, sessions are 8:30-11:30 a.m., 12:30-3:30 p.m. and 4:30-7:30 p.m.

Tickets are expected to go on sale next week. To learn more about this event or to purchase tickets click here: http://www.legokidsfest.com/buy-tickets.html

Tickets for the LEGO Creativity Tour are $19 (plus tax and service fees). Children under 2 are free.
