How did I not know about this event? I've been living in Virginia for more than a decade and my kids have been LEGO fanatics for more than a couple of years, and, yet, this is the first year we've attended BrickFair, the annual con for Virginia LEGO fans.
Spoiler: it was fantastic.
We saw some pretty amazing castles.
My boys loved the airplanes and helicopters.
My favorite was the Phoenix replica from Battle of Planets. So cool.
There was even a working tornado. I kid you not, this thing spun around. Very creative.
And where there's a tornado, there must be.... Sharknados!
All (blurry, amateurish) photographs belong to me. I can't blame anyone else.
