*articles may contain affiliate links* Are Yinz excited for Brick Fest Live Pittsburgh? If you love building with toy bricks (Lego if we’re being specific), then you’ve got just one more day to catch this fun event that came to our city this weekend. The ‘lil Burghers got a chance to check it out today (thanks to US Family Guide) and are here to tell you it is awesome!

Our Experience at Brick Fest Live Pittsburgh
We took advantage of the Saturday afternoon session and because the twins are 2 (2 and under are free), all six of us went. While most of the activities are geared toward the bigger kids, Ava and Isla seemed to enjoy all of the stations we visited. Take a look at how the day went for us:
Remember, if you don’t have tickets for Sunday, you can still get them here for $3 off with code USFGTHREE. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel to see the video recap of the day (and this event)!
