Events

bluelegoYou can celebrate Legoland’s 10th birthday this month without loading up the family and driving to Carlsbad, Calif.

The Arizona Science Center is hosting a model building competition July 15 and showing off what they’re calling the world’s largest Lego birthday cake. It’s nearly 10 feet tall, made of more than 100,000 bricks and features miniature replicas of some of Legoland California’s most popular attractions.

The competition is judged in three age categories: 9 and younger, 10 to 15 and 16 and older. Guests of Arizona Science Center are welcome to build their birthday-themed model anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., with a winner from each category to be announced at 4 p.m.

Winners will reportedly receive a prize package valued at more than $300 that includes Lego play materials, a two-day family four-pack of Park Hopper tickets to both Legoland California and Sea Life Aquarium and one-night accommodations.

The science center is at 600 E. Washington St. in downtown Phoenix.
