I’ve been enviously watching the announcements for The LEGO Americana Roadshow as it made stops all year long around the US. I had plans for us to make a weekend trip if it landed someplace close this summer, but it never really worked out the way I expected.
Or so I thought.
You can imagine how excited I was to see this announcement on the back of the September LEGO Calendar:
Iconic buildings and architectural structures throughout the mall made entirely of LEGO bricks!
Coming to North Point Mall
September 19 – October 4
I just don’t know how I didn’t see this sooner!
At the roadshow, you’ll get a close up look at the following iconic American landmarks in a larger scale LEGO model:
- US Capitol Building
- The White House
- Supreme Court
- Washington Monument
- Jefferson Memorial
- Lincoln Memorial
- Statue of Liberty
- Independence Hall
- Old North Church
LEGO doesn’t have much on The LEGO Americana Roadshow website, but I was able to get more information from reading other blogs. Most of the other malls announced mini build days during one weekend of the roadshow. North Point Mall has yet to update their Events page with any information on the event, so we will see. You should have an opportunity to build one of the American landmarks.
The Statue of Liberty and The White House were already built at other stops, so do not expect to build either one of those at this event. Other bloggers wrote on a Roadshow Scavenger Hunt which results in a poster prize. Oh, and there is an Instagram contest for a chance to win one of so many $50 gift cards. Make sure you bring your A game… and your cell phone!
(Update 8/31/2015) We stopped by our local LEGO store and confirmed the details of the event with the store manager:
- The Mini-Model Build during The Americana Roadshow at North Point will be Sat & Sun, Sept 26 & 27, Noon-4 (or while supplies last) both days. The set will be The White House.
- During the entire event, there will be a Scavenger Hunt that takes you to each model and when completed you bring your Scavenger Hunt form to the LEGO Store and receive a FREE poster.
- There will also be a drawing to guess the # of pieces in the US Capitol Building that is being sponsored by the Mall. You can win a Mall Gift Card with closest prediction.
So there you have it folks… all the deets on The Americana Roadshow at North Point Mall.
