Looking at the schedule for Brick Fiesta this year and considering my own schedule and financial situation, I think I might be able to go this year. Emphasis on might. I've never gone to a LEGO fan event like Brick Fiesta before, so not entirely sure what to expect. It also depends on anything that might come up on the days its open. I have no big trips or anything else scheduled for July 23-26, but just the same, sometimes things come up when you least expect it (like my grandfather's funeral last year, which I think I blogged about here). It also depends on gas prices. As of this writing, gas is $1.79 a gallon in my area (unbelievable, I know). If gas prices go back up during the summer, I probably won't go (unless they go up only by maybe a couple of cents or something like that). But I've been thinking about going to Brick Fiesta for years now, with the biggest obstacle being a lack of money and distance. I do have some money now, more than enough to fund a trip to Austin and back, but July is still quite a ways away and six months is more than enough time for something big to come up, so I don't want to make any real commitments to it just yet. I just wanted to know if any of my fellow BZPers (whether Texan or just visiting) have been to Brick Fiesta and if so, what they thought about it. Interested in hearing y'all's experiences 'cause if Brick Fiesta is no good, I definitely won't go even if gas prices stay this low (or get even lower) and I have the time and transportation to do so.
If anyone is in the DFW area of Texas, C.R. Smith Museum has a LEGO Castle display going on right now. I've been meaning to check out myself, but I haven't made it out there, so I don't know any details besides what's on the museum page. Sorry I didn't post about this sooner, but if anyone is interested in checking it out, it runs through September 12. American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum 4601 Texas Highway 360 at FAA Road Fort Worth, Texas 76155 http://crsmithmuseum.org/Exhibits.aspx ©1984-2014 Toaraga EAM
I heard about a LEGO convention that's happening in my neck of the woods (from somebody who doesn't live in my neck of the woods... see how on top of things I am). Brick Fiesta July 4-7, 2013 Hampton Suites & Convention Center Mesquite 1700 Rodeo Drive Mesquite, TX 75149 I'm thinking about going, if anyone's interested. If I do go, it might just be during the public hours, since I haven't really done anything with LEGO in a while and am not really sure what I have going at that time. (I might have a chance to go with a cousin who's also grown up with LEGO and whom I don't see much). So if anyone else is interested, just let me know. I wouldn't mind meeting up.
