LEGO KidsFest 2013 was held in San Jose, CA (Bay Area) this past Labor Day Weekend. We were lucky to be able to attend the event on Friday of their 3-day show. The show was completely SOLD OUT.
We arrive a bit after the show started & picked up our Media Passes. All the kids/parents we saw were very excited and couldn't wait to get inside to see what this event was all about. As you enter, you are handed an Official Show Program Guide and then you are greeted with the Welcome to LEGO KidsFest Sign that you see below.
Then you are will see 2 Huge Lego Men standing there greeting you as make your way inside.
We start out at the Duplo area on the left hand side of the floor where you will see some cool Duplo Displays and a Lion made out of Duplo blocks. Kids and Parents were having fun taking pictures with it and sticking their heads inside the Lion's mouth.
A Big Attraction was the LEGO Museum that was on display which included Harry Potter & Cast, Lightning McQueen, Spongebob Squarepants, Superman, Darth Maul, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2D2, Darth Vader, Batman, Iron Man and many more....Everyone was taking pictures with these awesome display pieces.There were a lot of hands-on workshops for kids to do from Legends of Chima, Ninjago, LEGO City, LEGO Friends, Life of George, Hero Factory, Mindstorms, Galaxy Squad, Monochromatic Build, Star Wars, Games, Challenge Zone, Technic etc....

Check out all the pictures below in our slideshow. We had an awesome time. We hope that the LEGO KidsFest will return next year so those who were not able to go this year will be able to attend.
