Guests to the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk on Saturday and Sunday, March 7 and 8, can build marine creatures as part of a large ocean scene at the venue’s fourth-annual “LEGO Weekend.”
During this popular fourth-annual event, LEGO experts from Play-Well TEKnologies will be onhand both days to oversee construction of a colorful coral reef made entirely out of LEGO blocks in Newman’s Own Hall.
The experts will create the underwater environment, but it needs animals, so guests can build LEGO marine creatures that will be part of the finished piece. Choose from such animals as a jellyfish, seal, shark, sting ray, turtle and fish, or use your imagination to build an animal unknown to science.
“We love ‘LEGO Weekend’ for how it adds a colorful and creative element to the Aquarium, but we also love how it challenges young guests to think through how things go together to build their creatures,” Aquarium spokesman Dave Sigworth said in a news release.
Also during “LEGO Weekend,” Aquarium guests can build motorized LEGO machines that will duel for superiority on LEGO Battletracks, as well as other LEGO projects.
The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, 10 N. Water St. Saturday and Sunday, March 7-8, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days, although Aquarium members can get to the LEGO blocks first on March 7 beginning at 9 a.m. “LEGO Weekend” free with admission. 203-852-0700, maritimeaquarium.org
