GREENFIELD — After proving popular with audiences both young and old in its first year, the Greenfield Brick Expo is returning to wow Lego-lovers at the Hancock County Fairgrounds this weekend.

Last year, the sprawling Lego display attracted more than 2,200 people to the fairgrounds, where exhibitors showed off creations that took some of them years to complete.

It was the first fundraiser for the newly formed Greenfield Lego User Education group, which raises money to provide educational Lego tools to local classrooms.

Last year, the brick expo raised $11,000. A portion of those proceeds went to exhibitors and overall expenses, but the remainder was used to purchase supplemental classroom materials, said Devon Woodburn, one of the group’s founders.
