The building blocks of Family Day

Lego creations and the Sidney firefighters take centre stage in local museum display

Ready for a little magic? Lego Harry Potter and friends are on display at the Sidney Museum and Archives on Beacon Avenue. The museum’s annual Lego display

Building on the success of last year’s first Family Day holiday in Sidney, organizers of events on the Feb. 8 to 10 weekend are blocking off some of the town’s special places for the colours of Lego.

It all starts this month at the Sidney Museum and Archives on Beacon Avenue. As of Jan. 2, the museum has had on display their large collection of Lego creations. Throughout January and February, the museum will have its Star Wars, construction pieces, ships, cars and more on display. They also pay tribute to the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department with special cases of firefighter-themed Lego.

The department is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year and the Family Day weekend in Sidney will focus on that, with planned events in town.

At the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre on Feb. 8, there will be Lego displays and activities (regular rates apply).

Over at the fire hall on Feb. 9, watch professional Lego builder Robin Sather build a giant fire truck. The next day, Sather will be at the Mary Winspear Centre and he invites the community to help him build a large Lego mural.

All weekend, plan for a Lego treasure hunt and even more family-friendly activities.

The Sidney Museum’s Lego display is on until the end of March.
