For three days, the Lego Group built a twelve-foot tall, ten-foot wide giant Santa Yoda made from around a 250,000 Lego pieces. In Union Square at around 6pm on Sunday night, the final piece of the giant Yoda was put in place. They'll be taking down the entire structure Monday, so catch it while you can!
There is no try. There is only build, and let the building begin! Starting in just about an hour here, a ginormous LEGO Santa Yoda is being constructed in Union Square next to the Holiday Ice Rink. Two (of only 12) certified LEGO Master Builders will be on site, guiding the construction of the massive, 12' x 10' toy statue. The public is invited to help piece together the more than 6,000 oversized LEGO blocks, too, so stop by and get your build on.
If you caught sight of thousands of red-and-white-clad local folk donning Santa apparel and belting out boisterous (and sometimes naughty) Christmas carols Saturday afternoon, it wasn't because someone slipped a roofie in your drink. Santas from all walks of life--big Santas, small Santas, heavily-bearded Santas, clean-shaven Santas, Santas in shades, Santas with elf companions--joined holiday forces in the spirit of SantaCon 2008.
