Lego Americana Roadshow: Building Across America
Lego fans, listen up! A traveling exhibit of iconic American landmarks rolls into Bellevue this week, and — you guessed it — the landmark models are built entirely of Lego bricks. Think a giant Lego Statue of Liberty, White House and Liberty Bell.

The Lego Americana Roadshow sets up shop in Bellevue Square Aug. 4–19, 2018. Models will be on view to visitors during mall hours. Of course you can't touch the models of famous structures, built by Lego master builders.
But fear not if you know that kids do not want to just look at Lego (duh). A hands-on Lego play area will be open during mall hours every day of the road show display (Aug. 4–19); that's Monday–Saturday, 9:30 a.m.–9:30 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Find the play area in the wing of the mall known as the "Zara corridor."
While kids may make a beeline for the play area, save a few minutes to view the landmarks display. Kids will find an activity sheet at each of the models. Once completed, kids can take the activity sheet to the Lego Store for a free Lego Americana collectible card pack. In addition, wander the mall because many stores will have their own Lego displays set up that are well worth a look.
The Roadshow will host two free Make and Take Build Events so mark your calendar. On Saturday, Aug. 11, and Sunday, Aug. 12, noon–4 p.m. each day, head to the second level of Bellevue Square near Kizuki Ramen for a free giveaway build event. Expect a crowd because "free" and "Lego" together are sure to bring out tons of families.
