The Tennessee Valley LEGO Club celebrated their 5th anniversary at the Huntsville Depot in style! If there was a theme, it was variety. In addition to the town and train layout everyone has come to associate with our club, this year also saw an explosion of MOCs including some impressive ones from the Rocket City Jr. LEGO Club, the debut of a Great Ball Contraption and a LEGO themed stop motion animation room and workshop. Special thanks as well to Stefan from the Birmingham LBR store for representing the LEGO Group all day!
To compliment the impressive display, we also drew a record crowd thanks in no small part to Jennifer's hard work promoting the event. The unofficial count when we left was 545, blowing out our previous best of around 360 in 2010!
The Huntsville Times was on site to cover the event. Click here for their story. Annisa Graham with examiner.com also produced a great write-up.

Not to be outdone, Jennifer responds with an urban explosion of her own!
