Have your kids ever wanted to swim in a pile of LEGOs? Let’s be honest, have you ever wanted to swim in a pile of LEGOs? Your LEGO dreams can become a reality at LEGO Live.

This brick-tastic event, running Friday-Sunday, February 16-18, will take place at Pier 36 in Manhattan, and will be chock-full of immersive experiences. There’ll be building activities, live performances, demonstrations and even a Coding Corner (perfect for STEM lovers!).

We got a sneak peek of the festivities—take a look!

There’ll be over 20 life-sized models including Star Wars fave Luke Skywalker:

If your kids are into STEM, there’s plenty to wow and entertain them including coding and robots at the Coding Corner.

Make sure to hit the Main Stage, where you can pick up building tips and tricks from live demonstrations, competitions and Q&A sessions. And don’t forget to stop by LEGO Architecture and help fellow builders create iconic skyscrapers.

If your crew are fans of Minecraft, use specialty LEGO pieces to create your own version of the game. And you’ll (obviously) need to stop by the LEGO Shop, where there will be exclusive “show only” items.

Tickets run from $30-75 per person. Go to LEGO LIVE’s website for more details.
