Family Day Celebrations
For the third consecutive year, downtown Sidney businesses are gearing up for another Family Day weekend of LEGO based events. Sidney Family Days ‐ a LEGO Brick Festival will happen February 7th, 8th and 9th, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Sidney restaurants and businesses will be open to welcome families. The theme this year is MARINE and back once again is Robin Sather, Canada’s only certified LEGO professional. This year Robin will build an amazing 6 foot long Seaspan tugboat.
Saturday the fun will start with the launch of the LEGO brick scavenger hunt throughout downtown Sidney. Maps will be available at the Museum for avid hunters to start their quest. The Ocean Discovery Centre will have underwater LEGO and VicLUG will have an intricate display of LEGO creations at the Pier Hotel all weekend. The Star Cinema will be showing the LEGO Movie during the weekend. Watch for the Ocean 98.5 Community Cruiser to visit Sidney every day.
Sunday, to add to the fun, Robin will start creating the tugboat on location at the Seaport Place building currently known as the Gracepoint Police Station.
On Monday, all the fun activities continue and Robin completes construction of his work of art at the Mary Winspear Centre. Visitors will help Robin build a large LEGO mosaic, which will match the design of the tugboat. The Mary Winspear Centre will also have LEGO play areas for all ages, and a community open house where families can learn about the activities available to family and youth in the Sidney area. Perhaps you will find a new club or activity to join.
So take the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of all ages out to explore Sidney in search of exciting LEGO displays, and enter your completed treasure map at the Sidney Museum for a chance to win a wonderful prize. Watch for draw boxes and door prize opportunities for fabulous LEGO prizes all weekend.
