Thinking back to the days of being a child, one toy stands out that has stood the test of time, and inspired more ideas than just about any toy I can think of...Legos!

If you are a fan of Lego blocks and the great things created with them, you'll be very excited to know that for the first time ever, Maine will be hosting a Lego Convention, according to a report by WCSH.

The BrickUniverse LEGO Fan Convention will be coming to Portland Saturday, April 30th & Sunday, May 1st at the Portland Expo. Tickets are currently available for either day at $15 each.

You can expect to see and meet professional Lego artist Jonathan Lopes. Lopes is a California artist that specializes in Lego creations, and will be displaying over 30 of his amazing Lego displays. One of his "works of art" that many are looking forward to seeing is his 8' tall Lego model of New York City's Woolworth Building.

Also planning to be on-site is Chicago-based Lego artist Rocco Buttliere. Now Buttliere plans to have over 50 of his Lego models on-hand to check out, like his famous landmarks from around the world.

The convention also promises to have plenty of Lego merch, a variety of different vendors, and even some local Lego creations by local artists.
