Robin's Brickfair Alabama 2014 Event Report...

The Greater Florida LEGO Train Club returned to Hillsborough Community College's Plant City Campus for the 24th Annual Train Show put on by the H. B. Plant Railroad Historical Society.
Brickfair Alabama was held in for the third year at the Birmingham Convention Center, but this time it was moved to the larger East Hall. This is the second time GFLUG has display at this event in Alabama. And the Birmingham convention center is well maintained facility and an excellent location for this event. Public attendance for this show seemed quite large, with the GFLUG layout having a crowd of two or three deep all the way around us all day Saturday. The Sunday crowd was not as big, but a sizeable crowd never the less.
On the other hand, the attendance of MOCs toting AFoLs was less this year.
I am guessing the winter season was ruff on many of the planned attendees, because there were many cancelations.
There were many bare areas on the tables and far less quality MOCs to see in the various themed areas this year.
The organizers say they will work on getting more AFoLs with MOCs for next year's event.
See images and video of the massive multi club display, featuring LEGO® models built by GFLUG, NGLTC, TBRR and more...
Come to this model train show and see the GFLUG's rendition of the Downtown Tampa's skyline in LEGO® bricks!
Matt S - The LEGO Movie is a film that will simultaneously appeals to LEGO fans of all ages and those who love them. As an AFoL (Adult Fan of LEGO) and the parent of two KFoLs (Kid Fan of LEGO), I was able to enjoy the movie as both a parent and a fan. The song in the movie "Everything is Awesome!" will quickly drive parents and AFoL to the brink of insanity!
