FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fifth Annual LEGO® Convention for Northern California
BRICKS BY THE BAY convention August 7-10, 2014
Northern California-March 2014: In late summer, Bricks By the Bay, a convention for LEGO® artists, enthusiasts, hobbyists, and fans will be held August 7-10, 2014. The convention will be hosted at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in Santa Clara, California.
“This year marks a special milestone for Bricks By the Bay,” said Bill Ward, president of Bricks By the Bay, Inc. and a hobbyist himself. “This will be our fifth annual convention. We held our first in April of 2010 and were blown away by the incredible reception, both among LEGO® builders and fans but also the general public.”
LEGO® hobbyist conventions bring together fans and building enthusiasts of the brightly colored plastic bricks. Many bring their favorite creations, often referred to as MOCs (aka My Own Creations), to display and share with other enthusiasts.
Convention attendees also participate in games, contests and workshops.
The theme for the 2014 convention is Fun & Games. Convention attendees are invited to create original designs that fit with the theme.
Bricks By the Bay 2014 will be different in two important ways than previous events: The first is an increase in floor space for attendee creations – over 33,000 square feet;
and the second is an added third convention day which will allow attendees to enjoy even more workshops and special events.
Bricks By the Bay draws hobbyists and clubs from around the country…even internationally…and features club displays, individual MOC’s, contests, vendors, keynote speakers and the final day of convention, August 10, 2014 will include an “Open to the Public” time where the general public can come in and view the many creations on display.
“I’m hoping every kid who attends our public exhibit on Sunday, August 10, will come away with inspiration to make something great with their own LEGO® collection,” said Russell Clark, a core volunteer of Bricks By the Bay, Inc. and avid builder.
