TROY — LEGO lovers can view the WACO Air Museum’s “First Responders: Our Real Heroes” LEGO exhibits on March 17 from noon to 5 p.m.
The exhibit consists of 45 local entries as well as a giant city block built by OKI LUG (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana Lego Users Group), which is 70 members strong.
Local entries include exhibits that demonstrate military life at home and abroad, the raising of the flag amidst the rubble of the twin towers after 9/11, a fire truck with working lights, exhibits that depict life at the police station, Coast Guard, first responders at the scene of a car crash, and rescuing a cat from a tree. Tornado, fire and flood rescues are represented, as well as a Eurocopter 5A-366G1 Dolphin, a memorial to a fallen K-9 shot in the line of duty, a light up volcano and the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan when it served in the Philippines.
The event will include activities such as a LEGO scavenger hunt, a LEGO building zone with thousands of bricks for building, popcorn and a LEGO movie, door prizes, a market to purchase used LEGO kits and other lego items, and an opportunity to win a classic bi-plane ride for two in “Sunny,” the big yellow WACO airplane.
Museum admission is $6 per adult and $3 per child (3 and under are free.) No additional cost for the LEGO activities.
