Brick Fair

The vacation continued with one more activity back in the USA.  Brick Fair is an event where AFOLs (Adult Fans of Legos) gather to display their MOCs (My Own Creation). Susanna and Cedar, ignoring any jet lag or general overall vacation exhaustion, headed to VA to attend the last day of this week long event.
Some MOCs are very large and elaborate like this reproduction of the Vatican City.

 This is the quiddich arena from Harry Potter.

Categories for entries included: Military, Steam Punk, Castle, Fantasy, Space, Science Fiction, Pirate, City and Historical.
Exhibits came in all sizes. The main rule is that they are not Lego kits. These creations are made using parts from various Lego kits to make your own creation.
The event was held in Virginia at the convention center but their were exhibitors from all across the East Coast.  Including three from the Lego Club in which Cedar participates. 
None of the exhibits are glued together so traveling poses a real challenge.

With just the right amount of creativity, a tea room could certainly fit in among this grouping of colorful Victorian buildings! 
FYI: If you're interested, there's another Brick Fair scheduled in October in Somerset, NJ.

I bed Cedar really enjoyed this. How fun! Definitely a tearoom should be in that little village.
