BayLUG, BayLTC, and MOAH have partnered to present their 17th annual holiday show. This event is normally held at the Museum of American Heritage in Palo Alto, but we decided to create a virtual holiday show website this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show can be viewed for free at this website until January 10, 2021. We’ve had a lot of fun putting together the display and hope you enjoy the show.

The pandemic has affected all of us in one way or another, but it did not stop BayLUG members from participating in a virtual version of Bricks by the Bay! Ordinarily an in-person event in Santa Clara drawing several thousand visitors over a weekend, the event morphed, and entered the virtual world. Several members worked on their interpretation of Dr. Seuss characters bringing them to life in LEGO® form. Members then filmed their creations, and a video compilation was shown to the virtual attendees. We really look forward to returning to in-person meetings and shows as soon as it is safe. Still, BayLUG’s passion for collaboration and presentation of custom creations endures! Model and photo by Leonard E. Marquez.

Several BayLUG and BayLTC members attended and presented “My Own Creations” (MOCs) at the 10th annual Bricks by the Bay convention from July 12-15, 2019 in Santa Clara, CA. To fit with the convention theme, “UneXpected”, BayLUG showcased a collaborative “X-Mas in July” town and train display, which featured a beachfront boardwalk with sunbathing elves, a German holiday market next to pine and palm trees, and a variety of festive buildings and vehicles. BayLUG’s display won the Best Large Team Build award. BayLUG was proud to sponsor the Bricks by the Bay convention and promote a fun attraction for brick enthusiasts of all ages.
