“Any family who likes to be inspired, get hands-on and have fun together won’t want to miss LEGO KidsFest,” said Vince Rubino, LEGO events manager. “We’re bringing so many activities for Louisville-area families to test and showcase their creativity and building skills in what is sure to be a family event to remember.”
