75 Years of LEGO

Friday ...

Friday, 2007-08-10: The festival
The presents
Each one brings presents at birthday parties.
So the idea was born that every invited AFOL had to bring a 8x8 vignette where in any way 
a "75" is to be seen. 
Stephan will then attach them to a large plate and ready is the wall decoration ...
And there were some mosaics built by Bruno which were presented in the name of the employees.

The festival
Every danish LEGO employee was invited to the festival. A colection of 25 diferent tents have been there. Either one want's to work on the large puzzle, or want's to ride an electrical bull, want's to relax or be entertained, for every visitor was the right tent there!
And they came to our tent too, scores of! Sometimes it was crowded (and hot too)!
But every LEGO employee was friendly, enthusiastic and interested. Ideal visitors!

After the last tone of the bagpipes and the last farewell of the colourful girls the event crew starts immediately to demolish each and every piece of the tents. Maybe the are in badly need of the parking space (festival site) ...
