LEGO BRICK PARTY BUILDS FUN FOR ALL AGES AT SALT AT OUR KAKA‘AKO
KAKA‘AKO, HI (Oct. 9, 2017) – Experience hands-on fun at the SALT at Our Kaka‘ako Brick Party, Oct. 15. All ages are welcome starting at 10 a.m., as the Hawaii Lego Users Group brings a day full of colorful blocks, displays and a building contest.
Check out colorful exhibits, take a “fire walk” over Lego bricks for prizes, get tips from master builders and more. Toddlers can play with Lego Duplo bricks, which are twice the size of ordinary blocks. Keiki and adults are encouraged to dress in Lego and Halloween inspired outfits, for even more fun.
For the Halloween-themed building contest, entries will be judged on originality, creativity, use of Lego parts and overall interpretation of the theme. Winners of the building contest will receive Lego sets.
“SALT at Our Kakaʻako is known as a creative, artistic space,” said Jimmy Ventura, General Manager of SALT at Our Kakaʻako. “This free event is a great way to encourage young minds to work with their hands and allow their creativity to flourish. Plus, you are never too old to play.”
The Hawaii Lego Users Group was founded in 2012. The group is comprised of builders, collectors and fans dedicated to spreading the joy of plastic brick-building. The SALT at Our Kakaʻako Brick Party is the first large-scale gathering that the Hawaii Lego Users Group is planning on a regular, quarterly basis.
“We can’t wait to meet like-minded individuals who also love brick-building as much as we do and are passionate about Lego,” said Roy Gal, co-founder of the Hawaii Lego Users Group. “SALT at Our Kakaʻako has such a great artistic scene, so we’re sure that guests will wow us with their creations.”
The SALT at Our Kakaʻako Brick Party is part of the exciting events at Honolulu’s leading urban retail and dining destination. The community is also welcome to the monthly Hawaiian cultural showcase Pa‘akai Marketplace, the popular SALT Bar Crawl, and the upcoming holiday shopping experience, A Pinch of SALT in December.
