More than 3,000 Lego enthusiasts attend Queenscliffe Bricks 2019
MORE than 3,000 Lego enthusiasts enjoyed a wide range of exhibits, play area and masterclasses at Queenscliffe Bricks 2019 on the weekend.
Karen Pecar from Rotary Club of Queenscliffe said this year’s 34 exhibitors came from as far away as Tasmania and Mount Gambier and brought exhibits ranging from Lego puzzles, Star Wars to ski fields, bugs to books, dresses to dragons and everything in between.
Ms Pecar said local Future Lego Master Builder winner Thomas McGregor, 10, exhibited his Custom Chevy C10 with (very cute) dog in the back, and the other winners were Adam Matthews and Tom Winter with their huge build Incident City Queenscliff, which took out both the People’s Choice and Exhibitors’ Choice Awards.
Ms Pecar said organisers of this year’s event were blown away by the community’s involvement.
The community event, run by the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe, raised more than $20,000 for major beneficiaries ShelterBox disaster relief, Barwon Health’s Volunteers Patient Transport service and Rotary’s End Polio Now initiative.
