We are currently a little over 2 months away from our 4th annual LEGO showcase - BRICKSPO!

This year`s show, July 25th - 26th, promises to be even bigger and better than those in the past!  We`re planning on having over 25 LEGO enthusiasts at the show and are making space available for more than 500 LEGO creations in 10 different themes!

But our participants won`t be the only ones having fun...  We are providing a number of ways for visitors of the show to build, play and interact:

- Bricks 4 Kidz will be returning to provide brick-building workshops for kids of all ages!  These workshops are scheduled continuously throughout the weekend and are free with your admission into the museum.

- Our Kids Contest is up and running again this year for kids aged 8 - 14.  This year`s challenge is to build a vehicle for a LEGO Super-Hero!  This is a pre-registration event, so if interested, please email us at  This year's contest is sponsored by Comic Readers from Regina!

- As with previous years, SLUG will be holding a number of participant contest that need to be voted on!  By casting you ballot, you'll be entering to win a number of different LEGO set prizes!  Be sure to watch for the contests and vote!

We are looking forward to this year's show and hoping that you are too!  See you at the WDM in Moose Jaw for BRICKSPO!!!
