Participants in the Bricks by the Lake event can either build a creation in advance to compete in a themed contest or compete the day of the event in a timed competition building creations are separated by age group.

Those who don’t want to compete can enjoy the day viewing the LEGO competition, a Master Build creation, and kids can engage in the free play area and craft activity.

Activities will take place across multiple locations at Lake Anne Plaza including Reston Museum, Reston Community Center, Reston Art Gallery and Studios, and Lake Anne Brew House.

A Reston-themed custom limited edition kit will be available. This year’s unique kit is inspired by James Rossant’s Moon Viewing Platform at Lake Anne Plaza.

“We are thrilled to be bringing this event back for the second year in a row.
