If you loved playing with Lego’s as a child or if your kids still do, you’re probably going to want to check out this miniature version of Oklahoma City made from Lego’s. For the third year in a row, the OK CityScape exhibit is capturing the hearts of the many with its creative and one of a kind display.
The OK CityScape exhibit has become a holiday tradition for many, and visitors can come walk through the exhibit, take pictures, and even receive instruction on how to build structures with Lego’s. Every Friday, there will be a Weekly Story Time and Saturdays feature special workshops for visitors.
The OK CityScape display started in 2009, when Lego’s Master Builder Kurt Zimmerle of Michigan created the unique miniature display. This year, Lego’s Master Builder Johnathan Lopes from New York has recreated the new Myriad Botanical Gardens and, according to event planner Rachel Hernandez of The Exchange, it is the crown jewel at this year’s exhibit. The Myriad Botanical Gardens, as well as the entire exhibit, is sponsored by the Devon Energy Tower. Other sponsors this year include Integris Health.
According to Hernandez, only the companies that sponsor the event are to be included in the OK CityScape. The money provided by the sponsors will be donated to Educare, a nonprofit organization that helps families and children who are suffering from the consequences of school failure. To date, about $350,000 has already been donated to the organization.
