Reston’s newest community event inspires creativity one Lego brick at a time

Alexandra Campbell Around Town

The Reston Historic Trust & Museum is hosting the first annual Bricks by the Lake event on August 14, 2021 from 3 – 5 p.m. The community is invited to Lake Anne Plaza to create Lego creations based on the themes of live, work, play and memories. Attendees enjoying the day can view the Lego builds being created on the plaza as well as a Master Build creation inside Reston Community Center’s Jo Ann Rose Gallery. Awards will be given for each age bracket.

“Bricks by the Lake inspires creativity, thinking outside the box and fun! We cannot wait to see what the community builds.” says Alexandra Campbell, Executive Director of the Reston Historic Trust & Museum.
