COLUMBUS, Ohio — LEGOLAND Discovery Center Columbus is celebrating its first birthday with a week-long event at Easton Town Center.

What makes this event unique is special contest where families can enter for a chance to become immortalized as LEGO® minifigures in MINILAND Ohio.

“Our master model builder Max will create them in LEGO minifigure form, and we’ll place them somewhere in Columbus, and we’ll always leave it there,” says marketing manager Jenna Maffei. “It’s a really cool opportunity.”
