The San Francisco Giants held the first ever professional sporting event LEGO Day on Saturday, September 12th, 2015. We invited Play-Well families to come out to the event and over 100 families decided to come. To identify them amongst the tens of thousands of people that were there, we distributed Play-Well SF Giants LEGO Bow Ties. This was really helpful, as we were able to find them amongst the crowd. Here are some pictures from the event.

Even the Seal Mascot was made in LEGO.
Check out the three. A Child, a mini LEGO Seal Mascot, and the three Seal Mascot. Simply awesome.
We brought 30 extra SF Giants LEGO Bow Ties with us just in case we had additional families that wanted them. A lot of people asked us, where did we get the LEGO Bow Ties?
Some of our Play-Well staff got to see kids that they have taught at LEGO Day. We could identify this family by both the LEGO Bow Ties and the cape.
This family had a nifty way of wearing their SF Giants LEGO Bow Ties. It almost led to a perfect game.
Even the President of Play-Well Tim Bowen and his wife came to the event.
LEGO unveiled their SF Giants LEGO Buster Posey statue before the game.
Buster Posey statue was made up of over 20,000 pieces of LEGO and weighed over 85 lbs.
Here is LEGO Master Builder Chris explaining how he built it.

We saw this family’s LEGO Bow Ties on the BART ride there.
We even gave one to the concession stand guy. Looks good.
This family came all the way from Roseville, CA for the event.
Steve Parmley, one of the coordinators of Bricks By the Bay, even attended with his family. Check out his SF Giants necklace made out of LEGO.
Thanks San Francisco Giants and LEGO for putting this event together. We hope to attend it again next year.
