LEGO Holiday Bricktacular: LEGOLAND Florida Celebrates ChristmasBy Diana Cook
The holiday spirit is alive and kicking over at LEGOLAND Florida. The park’s first-ever tree lighting ceremony took place this week and it was truly Bricktacular sight to behold. The 30-foot-tall LEGO Christmas tree was created with a combination of (what else?) 270,000 forest green LEGO and DUPLO® bricks. USA Olympic hurdler David Oliver and general manager Adrian Jones were on hand to help light up the brick tree and jump-start LEGOLAND Florida’s Inaugural Christmas Bricktacular.
Olympian Oliver wowed the crowed with a high-flying entrance that included hurdles and dramatic count down to the lighting.
The festivities will continue through out the season. Santa Claus will be making special daily appearances in the historical botanical gardens and each night now through Dec. 31, a special family will be chosen to help light the Bricktacular tree. The fun keeps stacking up as Kids’ New Year’s Eve on Dec. 31 let’s kids rock out and watch the sky explode with LEGO fireworks at just the right time for them, midnight KST (Kid Standard Time) – otherwise known as 7 p.m. EST.
The coolest part of all? Holiday events are included in park admission. For tickets and more information visit LEGOLAND.com
