Ribbon cut on Lego Town 2013


FOX19's Frank Marzullo cut the ribbon on Lego Town 2013.

Wednesday's event was held at Camp Earnst Middle School in Burlington, Ky. There you'll find a complete town made of lego bricks on display.

The town is a creation of volunteer Sam Lapin, whose son is an 8th grader at the school. It features running trains, an operating amusement park, an airport, a castle a space center, water area, stores, homes, boats, cars and more.

In 2012, Lego Town raised over $5,000 for the school and attracted 1,800 visitors.

Lapin, a Communication Professor at Northern Kentucky University, has been building Lego projects for over 40 years.

Camp Earnst Middle School is located at 6515 Camp Earnst Road. The entry fee is $3 and all proceeds benefit the school's Lego League team.

FOX19 viewers will get in free from 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday evening.
