Vendors & Expo
We have some really exciting things planned for this year's expo area. Not only will we again have some really great Vendors and Dealers, but we will once again have a really wonderful LEGO Expo full of super displays and Free-play area. This is again sponsored by the Magic City Lego User Group (MCLUG).
Also in the expo area, you'll find a beautiful replica of the DeLorean Time Machine! Functioning lights and all, this beatiful machine built by Oliver and Terry Holler, will be on display for the duration of the event where you can get your picture made. Donations can be made through their organization, www.tothefuture.org, whose mission and purpose is to raise money and awareness towards a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
