[ARCHIVED] “Bricks Killeen” LEGO exhibit coming to Killeen this weekend

The first-of-its-kind event in the city will be on display Sept. 18-19

KILLEEN, Texas (Sep. 13, 2021) – The City of Killeen is working with the Killeen Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to bring a LEGO exhibit called, “Bricks Killeen” to town. The unique event will be at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center this weekend, Sept. 18-19.

More than three dozen exhibitors will have their extravagant creations on display, including a castle built out of 25,000 LEGO bricks, custom spaceships, a dinosaur ranch, a giant treehouse, a model of downtown Houston, Victorian houses and much more.

We are particularly honored to have a special display of military aircraft that will have a recreation of Killeen native and World War II hero, Bob Gray’s plane, Whiskey Pete.

The Texas Brick Railroad will be constructing part of a railroad piece in hopes of earning a Guinness World Record.

Creators will be on hand to answer questions and talk about how they design and create. After taking it all in, visitors can sit down at a Creation Station and snap some LEGOS together to see what they can create, including a community mural. The first 144 attendees who want to help build it will receive a portion to complete with instructions for the 10-foot by 10-foot, 75,000 LEGO brick mural.

Bricks Killeen is a free event sponsored by the Killeen Convention and Visitors Bureau, as well as Texas LEGO Users Group, which has chapters in Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.

Texas Lego Users Group has partnered with Fairy Bricks to help supply LEGO sets to hospitalized children, including McLane’s Children Hospital in Temple.

The event is Saturday, Sept. 18 from 10a.m. – 6p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 19 from 10a.m. – 4p.m.
