NORWALK, CT  – Help create an enormous ocean scene using everyone’s favorite building blocks during “LEGO® Weekend” Jan. 26 and 27 in The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

LEGO experts from Play-Well TEKnologies will be onhand both days to oversee a big fun coral-reef scene made entirely out of LEGO blocks in Newman’s Own Hall (near the seals).

The experts will create the underwater environment, but it needs animals! Aquarium guests can build a small LEGO marine creature that will be part of the finished piece. Choose from such creatures as a jellyfish, seal, shark, sting ray, turtle and fish, or build an animal unknown to science from your imagination.

“If you’ve been to The Maritime Aquarium lately, you’ve had the chance to create a two-dimensional marine animal in the clever ‘Sketch & Release’ activity on our giant video wall,” said Aquarium spokesman Dave Sigworth. “ ‘LEGO Weekend’ adds a dimension – literally – by letting you use your creativity to assemble three-dimensional creatures.”

Also during “LEGO Weekend,” Aquarium guests can build motorized LEGO machines that will duel for superiority on LEGO Battletracks.

The fun runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, but Maritime Aquarium members can get to the LEGO tables first each morning beginning at 9 a.m. (with proof of membership).

“LEGO Weekend” is free with Aquarium admission: $24.95 for adults; $22.95 for seniors (65+); and $17.95 for children (3-12). Kids under 3 get in for free.
