The Chicago Blackhawks victory over the Boston Bruins clinched the Stanley Cup on Monday. With an unbelievable ending that went down to the last seconds, the Hawks had everyone on the edge of their seats one minute and up and cheering the next. The Hawks win will be celebrated in a variety of ways-big and small across Chicagoland.
The pride in this hockey team is evidenced everywhere from the red lights on the skyscrapers to the helmets worn by lions guarding the Chicago Art Institute. (Not to mention all the fans in their black and red colors.)
In honor of the Blackhawks’ fantastic season, Lego Discovery Center Chicago’s Master Model Builder Andrew Johnson has built a large-scale replica of the Blackhawks logo made entirely out of LEGO!
The model is made of 756 LEGO bricks, weighs 20 lbs and took about 16 hours to build! The model will be on display at the Lego Discovery Center for Hawks fans to visit.
For more information on the Hawks celebration and parade check out fellow Chicago Now blogger at Show Me Chicago.
To see the Hawks logo made of Legos, or for more information, visit Legoland Discovery Center at 601 Martingale Road, in Schaumburg.
