Creativity proves to be building block of success at 2014 Lego Convention

It was a room filled with colorful Lego bricks where both children and parents were able to release their creative energies.

The Lego Convention was at the BJCC, Saturday.

Hundreds of vendors participated in the event. Everything from Lego trains to a Lego Alabama Theatre was on display.

In the past, the Lego Convention has drawn in Lego lovers from 26 states and three countries.

Organizers say this event is helpful for children to be creative.

"They just take that creative energy that they saw here and start building their own creations," Wesley Higgins said.

The Lego Convention will continue, Sunday, at the BJCC. It will be from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
