Solvang's first LEGO competition took place on April 2 and 3, 2022. The theme? The picturesque bakeries of the wine country town, which is well-known for its Danish heritage, windmills, and delicious pastries. (photos: Anna Ferguson-Sparks)
Visitors were invited to stop by and watch the process on April 2.
The awards ceremony took place on Sunday afternoon, April 3.
Tiny croissants, cupcakes, and coffee cups were featured in the whimsical LEGO sculptures.
"Taking first place and awarded a $5,000.00 cash prize for his Danish Mill Bakery / windmill / Viking ship scene, was Chris Wight. Wight's creation is now on view at the Danish Mill Bakery, whose owner purchased the winning build after the conclusion of the weekend's competition," shared a Solvang representative.
These happy pastry pros were the creation of Bill Vollbrecht. The builder received the second-place prize of $2,500.
The third-place award, and $1000, went to Tiffeny Thompson, who created this lovely line-up of bakeries, with patrons enjoying an alfresco dining scene.
The fabulous LEGO artworks set against the picturesque real-world backdrop of Solvang? It seems like a merry match, one that will continue when future brick-fun competitions return. Your best bet? Keep your eye on Solvang's social media for future announcements of any LEGO-related happenings, as well as all of the events that grace the city's calendar, from Danish Days to Julefest.
