LEGO EXPO TO BUILD ON PREVIOUS SUCCESSES
The BrisBricks LEGO® Fan Expo will return to Strathpine Community Centre on the June Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend, building on the successes of the inaugural 2013 Pine Rivers Expo.
The 2nd annual Pine Rivers BrisBricks LEGO Fan Expo will again see dozens of exhibitors thrill thousands of LEGO fans as well as raise valuable funds for local Pine Rivers community organisations.
The Expo is an initiative of State Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich, who is confident this year’s Expo will once again exceed expectations.
“No one ever expected nearly 7,000 people to attend last year’s Expo, but that success guaranteed its return to Strathpine again this year.”
“This year, to accommodate even more families and LEGO fans, the Expo will run over the entire three days of the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend (7th to 9th June).”
BrisBricks Expo Coordinator, Mr Russell Bates, said BrisBricks LEGO enthusiasts were excited about returning to Strathpine again this year.
“Our Expos are the highlight of our year. Strathpine was an amazing experience last year and we are looking forward to an even bigger and better Expo this year.”
The 2014 Expo will again benefit local community organisations, with money raised by the Expo to be distributed between Lawnton Girl Guides, Strathpine C&K Community Kindergarten, a local school P&C (to be confirmed), and local Scout groups.
Mr Bates confirmed that the Expo will again feature a closed session for children with autism and their families on the Sunday morning.
“The autism community session was a highlight of last year’s Expo and we are pleased to again offer a safe, suitable environment to allow children with autism to imagine and enjoy the LEGO creations on display.”
Pre-booked tickets are priced at $7 for adults and $3 for children and are available now at www.trybooking.com/EPFV
“Each day of the Expo is divided into sessions and in 2013 we saw sessions selling out, so I recommend buying your tickets online early,” Mr Holswich added.
