Sidney Business Community Celebrates With LEGO On Family Day

In celebration of the first BC Family Day statutory holiday on February 11,

2013, the Sidney Merchants’ Co-op is hosting a free LEGO Event at the Sidney Pier Hotel and throughout the town of Sidney.

The main event of the day will be a large-scale pirate-themed LEGO piece built live on site by Canada’s only LEGO-certified professional, Robin Sather of Brickville DesignWorks.

The Sidney Pier Hotel, located at 9805 Seaport Place, has donated space for the live-build.

There will also be a LEGO building area for LEGO professionals to create their own masterpieces, as well as other LEGO-themed activities for all ages.

The event takes place from 10-4, and there is no charge for admission, but donations will be accepted for the planned expansion of the Sidney Museum and Archives.

In addition to the event at The Pier Hotel, many local merchants will be participating in a town-wide LEGO treasure hunt, where families will visit the shops of Sidney in search of LEGO treasure. UPSTAIRS ON BEACON WILL BE ONE OF THESE MERCHANTS TO PARTICIPATE

Completed treasure maps will be returned to the Sidney Museum and entered into a draw for great LEGO prizes.

The Sidney Museum, located at 2423 Beacon Avenue, is currently exhibiting its massive collection of LEGO for the 8th consecutive year.

Each year the event draws thousands of LEGO fans to Sidney to enjoy the popular exhibit, which runs from January 2 to March 31.

The treasure hunt will carry on through to the end of the Museum’s LEGO exhibit. Robin Sather’s completed Family Day LEGO creation will be in residence at the Sidney Museum from end of day February 11 to March 31.

The Sidney Merchants’ Co-op is a group of local business owners who have joined together to promote business in Sidney, and the importance of shopping locally.

Each month a different business takes on the task of organizing an event or heading up an activity.

The Family Day celebration was launched by Jane Powell, owner of Buddies Toys, and sponsored by over twenty Sidney businesses, as well as The Q and The Zone radio stations, who will be broadcasting live from The Sidney Pier Hotel during the LEGO Event on February 11.

While families are in Sidney for Family Day, they will also have the opportunity to visit “Sidneyland,” at the Mary Winspear Centre, a popular event featuring bouncy castles, a variety of fun activities, and photo ops with some favourite characters. Sidney is a great place for families, and it is definitely the place to be on Family Day, Monday February 11th.
