Brick Barossa Lego Fan Event is set to make a spectacular return at St Jakobi Lutheran School, Lyndoch, these coming school holidays.

The inaugural ‘Brick Barossa’ event was held in July 2016 to a sell out crowd of over 4000 visitors raising funds for interactive technology in the classrooms.

This popular two-day event will be held again these July school holidays on Saturday, July 7 and Sunday, July 8.

The event means 75 exhibitors from across the state will fill the school with an array of intricate displays, including operational Lego trains, underwater scenes, a 5.5m long Duplo mountain and an impressive Star Wars super star destroyer eclipse dreadnought.

Parent and committee volunteer Brad Mundt has been busy building new coin operated Lego arcade machines for use at the event.

“The hands-on, interactive features of the event were very well received in 2016,” Mr Mundt explained.

“There will be new coin operated interactive machines in the Lego arcade, new remote control vehicles, robot soccer, a free jumping castle and a play area where children can build their own models while parents grab something to eat at the Brick Cafe.”

With winter holiday activities sometimes a challenge for families, this event is expected to provide an affordable device-free outing right here in the Barossa.

Families with children on the autism spectrum can book tickets for the special sensory session on Sunday morning where there will be lower levels of noise and lights.

Tickets for the event are available online with some tickets available at the door where sessions are not previously sold out prior to the event.

St Jakobi Lutheran School is located at 208 Lyndoch Valley Road, Lyndoch.

Online ticket prices: adults $12, children/ concession $10, under 3 for free. Family ticket (2 adults, 3 children) $44 and visit www.brickbarossa.com.au.
