LEGO Company Invites Washington, DC-Area Children to Build Giant LEGO® Harry Potter™ Mural

At Union Station

Saturday & Sunday, November 3rd & 4th

10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.

Children Entertainment: 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. each day

Washington, DC-area children have an opportunity to “build their imaginations” using thousands of LEGO® bricks to create a giant mural of popular characters from the exciting world of Harry Potter™.

Designed to withstand thousands of shuffling feet and little fingers, the two-dimensional mural will measure 7½′ × 11′ when complete and depicts Harry Potter, Hermione Granger™, Ron Weasley™ and the infamous Professor Snape. Children are invited to help build the mural by placing handfuls of LEGO bricks in the appropriate space, with guidance from any child’s ultimate mentor - LEGO® Master Model Builders.

While at Union Station, children not only will be able to participate in building the mural, they’ll also have the chance to “guess the number of bricks” it takes to complete the entire design. The closest guess will be awarded a one-foot-tall LEGO Harry Potter statue, custom made in the Model Design Shop in Enfield, Connecticut, from 573 LEGO bricks.

Christina recognized an eBay auction, reported by Steve Bliss on LUGNET in January, as the end product of the Union Station Harry Potter event.
