I am trying to find the nice writeup that was in the Destinations magizine which is a free tourist publication in Long Beach. Basic breakdown is that Anaheim Convention Center will be full of Model Trains... and they have a Lego exhibit... 7,000sq ft of Lego exhibit... so I was wondering if anyone else would like to go. I want to say Admission is $10, I'll look for the article when I get home.

FYI the website leaves a lot to be desired. However I am totally game for this. Partly because all of my kids are free... mainly because of a HUGE Lego exhibit. So anyone else interested?
