LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester to Host Holiday Bricktacular Events in December

Celebrate the holidays at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester's month-long Bricktacular event!

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester, a 32,300-square-foot indoor attraction for kids located in Yonkers, will celebrate the season with brand-new elements for its annual Bricktacular holiday events, which are happening all December long. In addition, LEGO MINILAND, featuring replicas of New York area landmarks made out of LEGO bricks, will be turned into a Winter Wonderland. Bricktacular at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester is the perfect place to break out your favorite ugly sweaters, snap some unique holiday photos, and get into the holiday spirit each weekend in December.

The kick-off for Bricktacular is on Saturday, Dec. 1, starting with a meet-and-greet with Willis Reifsnyder, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester’s new Master Model Builder. Bricktacular will continue on weekends through Sunday, Dec. 23, during which children and families can participate in themed activities to celebrate the holidays and seasonal shows including Nutcracker Dream, Blue Man Group New York, and A Christmas Carol.

Themed activities will include a mosaic build in the Master Builder Academy, a scavenger hunt in MINILAND, and custom-built attractions for each show created by Reifsnyder.

“We’re excited to partner with these great organizations to highlight their holiday shows during our annual Bricktacular events,” said Chris Mines, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester’s general manager. “I can’t wait to see what Willis creates out of LEGO bricks to commemorate each one of these amazing productions.”
