The Brickworld® LEGO® Exposition brings displays, hands-on activities and a variety of vendors to the 40,000 square foot Suburban Collection Showplace, at 46100 Grand River, in Novi, Michigan, on Saturday, September 21, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, September 22, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Single-day tickets for North America’s premiere LEGO expo are $13, or $12.50 cash at the door, and kids under three are free.
Brickworld Michigan will welcome hundreds of hobbyists and 20 vendors. Hands-on activities include LEGO and DUPLO play brick areas, seek and finds, and more. LEGO creations range from medieval castles to futuristic space stations featuring movie scenes, replicas of real-world buildings, and re-creations of famous paintings.
Special Brickworld Michigan activities include Super Robo Rally, King of the Hill games that start every hour and last around 20 minutes; Flock of Birds, where builders can display the bird they construct with the others; helping the Great Ball Contraption move LEGO soccer balls around a loop with a RC bulldozer; playing with a massive amount of bricks at Play Brick; and writing your name or building a mosaic picture on the Graffiti Wall.
“Since 2007, our motto has been ‘Share – Learn – Explore – Discover,’ which reflects our intent to create a fun and educational event where LEGO artists can meet and gain wisdom from each other,” said executive director and Master Builder Mark Larson. “Brickworld is all about having fun and being creative. With LEGO, the possibilities are endless, and, at Brickworld, we hope the inspirations are endless as well.” Larson is available for interviews.
The LEGO brick is widely recognized as one of the most educational toys in the world. Research suggests children learn best through play and LEGO bricks offer a wide range of benefits to children’s development and confidence. Using LEGO bricks exercises creativity skills, hand-eye coordination, and matrix reasoning. At Brickworld, participants of all ages can witness and learn an amazing variety of ways to use the brick for art and engineering applications.
Brickworld LLC is a private company that is not associated with the LEGO Group of companies. Brickworld operates expositions and conventions dedicated to LEGO enthusiasts with creations from brick artists to engineers. The Brickworld LEGO Exposition will come to Fort Wayne, Indiana, on October 12 and 13, 2019; and, in 2020, to Indianapolis on March 21 and 22; to Milwaukee on April 18 and 19; and to Chicago on June 20 and 21.

So,how are you celebrating this day… someone asked me…
The only way I know how… WORKING!
Respond in the comments and let us know how you are celebrating this day
NATIONAL WORKING PARENTS DAY
On September 16th, National Working Parents Day honors the working parent. The day pays tribute to those parents who work to provide for their family.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, around 61 percent of families with children have both parents working outside the home. That number increases to nearly 65 percent for families when the youngest child is at least six years old. However, if the youngest child is under six years old, that number drops to approximately 56 percent.
Working parents face a range of challenges. While juggling daycare and schedules top the list, they also struggle to find time with each other and their children. It’s often a balancing act that requires excellent communication skills, patience, and lots of love.
Often, working parents feel divided between home and work. Many times, parents work opposite schedules, so there’s always a parent home with kids. As a result, the adults rarely spend any time alone. Like many other working parents, they’re always on the go. Everyone has their responsibilities. Each takes turns staying home if one of the children becomes sick. School activities and other events are carefully orchestrated.
Precious family meals, bedtime stories, family movie nights, and vacations become highlights. These are the moments where working parents receive their rewards.
HOW TO OBSERVE #WorkingParentsDay
A parent’s work is never done. Working parents, pat yourself on the back. Spend some time with your children. Before long, they’ll be grown. Your hard work will be done. For now, celebrate your tenacity and perseverance. Be sure to remember all the work parents do and use #WorkingParentsDay to share on social media.
