FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAST YEAR’S SOLD-OUT CELEBRATION OF LEGO® RETURNS TO THE RIVER ROCK IN APRIL 2017

VANCOUVER, BC – January 15, 2017 – BrickCan is back! An international group of talented adult builders have been hard at work for months, designing amazing new creations to showcase at Canada’s largest public LEGO exhibition.

On April 22 and 23, 2017, the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, BC will host the second BrickCan exhibition. LEGO fans of all ages will view a huge variety of original LEGO creations, and shop with vendors selling LEGO‑themed merchandise as well as rare LEGO parts and sets. In the Creation Station, attendees can try their hands at building, and participate in interactive activities. Ticketholders ages 12 and under will receive an exclusive, custom-designed BrickCan building kit to take home.

“The response to last year’s event was huge – the  Lower Mainland loves LEGO,” says Robin Sather, LEGO Certified Professional builder and one of the event’s organizers. “We can’t wait to do it all again!”

Last year, tickets for BrickCan sold out very quickly. More tickets will be made available this year, but interested fans and families are encouraged to purchase tickets early. Tickets for specific, two-hour viewing times are on sale through Ticketmaster from January 15, 2017.

Admission for children aged three and under is free. Please note that strollers and wagons are not permitted in the exhibit hall, due to space constraints. The exhibition hall is fully wheelchair accessible.

Coming from out of town? Consider staying right at the River Rock Casino Resort and enjoy luxury rooms, amazing amenities, and a special BrickCan room rate (available for booking until March 1, 2017). Don’t forget to mention BrickCan while making your reservation.
