BayLUG's First Monterey Show a Success
July 5, 2016
By Steve Parmley
On Saturday, July 2, 2016, BayLUG made its first appearance in Monterey County at the Pacific Grove Summer LEGO Show and Building Event.
The show, co-sponsored by BayLUG and The Regional Artisans Association, was a great success and featured a variety of our members' original creations.
On display were numerous mosaics, historical structures, city scenes, an aircraft carrier, several Duplo figures, a zoo, a futuristic cityscape, a Disney tribute, and many more examples of our members' creativity.
Well over 1,000 Monterey County residents and visitors were treated to our MOCs, asked questions, and were inspired by what can be created with LEGO.
The local kids got into the act too, building their own MOCs with our club's play brick.
They were able to proudly display their creations in their own area, and some of their creations would fit right in with ours!
We have already been invited to return for another show ... stay tuned!
