The Bellevue Collection Welcomes Lego Americana Roadshow
Famous American landmarks will be brought to life in free, hands-on exhibit Aug. 4 – 19
Some of America’s most famous landmarks are temporarily moving to Bellevue – or at least, their LEGO replicas are. The LEGO Americana Roadshow is a free traveling roadshow stopping at The Bellevue Collection Aug. 4 – 19, marking the only Washington state appearance for this entertaining, interactive exhibit.
The public all-ages event will take place daily throughout The Bellevue Collection during shopping center hours. Anchoring the festivities are five large-scale replicas of iconic American buildings, including The White House, Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell, Supreme Court and Lincoln Memorial – all located throughout Bellevue Square.
Additional show activities include:
- LEGO Brickscapes placed throughout The Bellevue Collection featuring an intricate level of detail and creativity in themed landscapes, such as Cityscape, Good Earth Mall and Mount Rushmore;
- LEGO Make & Take events on Aug. 11 and 12 (12 – 4 p.m.) where guests can create their own version of the Statue of Liberty and take their build home;
- LEGO Play Area where people of all ages can build whatever their heart desires;
- LEGO activity map where guests can answer questions while visiting each landmark and once each question is answered correctly, head to the Bellevue Square LEGO store to receive a free LEGO Americana collective card pack.
Retailers throughout The Bellevue Collection are also getting in on the LEGO action, with many designing and displaying their own installments, including Nordstrom, McDonald’s and kate spade new york, to name a few.
