Brickworld, Chicago (Schaumburg, IL) has been an annual visit for us for the past four years. Each year new and exciting displays are in attendance and a growing number of AFOLs and the general public of LEGO lovers comes out in droves. Scores of volunteers and coordinators to host five days of LEGO MOCs, games, contests and presentations for AFOLs and LEGO fanatics around the world.
We also participate in the Friday night Esther Walner Memorial Charity fundraiser and auction. The last two years Eliska's memorial MOC of the original BrickLink front page has been auctioned off to raise even more donations in the name of her son, Dan.
It is always a great time to meet so many AFOLs, almost all of whom, are regular members of BrickLink.
Here are some photos from previous Brickworlds, 2015-2013.
