This event was the annual Lego fan festival. This event keeps getting bigger and better each year. 15,000 people over the course of 2 days. This is a very family friendly event. There are so many activities at this convention all encapsulated within the Lego universe. Next year they will be expanding the convention center floor space to accommodate the growing crowds.
The Empire joined forces with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to raise $875.50 for their cause. The raffle was held and the grand prize was a Lego Millennium Falcon. We even hosted two Make-A-Wish kids. Droid Hunt was also played with estimated prizes valued at $500.00 given away to BrickUniverse attendees with winning tickets.
Thanks go to the sponsors of the Carolina Garrison:
Walmart, for donating funds for the Lego Millennium Falcon.
WestRock, for printing and cutting the Droid Hunt badges.
WonderWorks (Charleston, SC) for donating various prizes.
BrickUniverse, for donating various Lego sets.
