Facebook celebrates LEGO communities and 60 years of the brick

Facebook recently held a unique build event to celebrate LEGO communities, to mark the 60th anniversary of the classic brick.

LEGO community leaders from around the world were invited to a special event at Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters. There, Master Model Maker Chris Steininger led two days of build activities in the year that marks the 60th anniversary of the brick, celebrating the communities based around LEGO that thrive both online and off.

Brick Fanatics were there to get stuck into half a million elements, participating in a campus tour, build contests and brick based networking. Check back soon for more coverage of the event – and this seems like the right moment to suggest liking Brick Fanatics on Facebook.
