This year we were at the Cuyahoga County Fair, in Berea Ohio, from Thursday – Sunday August 8 – 12. NEOLUG had as much fun as the nearly 250,000 fair visitors this year.
We had even more people show up this year to look at the wonders we created such as a mini Cuyahoga County Fair, Egypt, and other creations from the our member artists. The miniaturization of Professor Bubblemaker’s Beautiful Bubble Ballet was a huge hit with both visitors and the professor himself. To see more of our photos of the event, please visit our photo’s page.
NEOLUG will be returning to Cuyahoga County’s Fair on Thursday, August 9 – Sunday, August 12. We will be featuring a minifair along with plenty of other new and favorite items. Here’s a sneak peak at what is planned to be there:
The fair is open 12:00 PM to 11:00 PM every day, and opens at 10:00 AM on Saturday.

NEOLUG participated again this year at The International Women’s Air & Space Museum annual Family Day on May 5, 2018. This year, NEOLUG featured several LEGO® creations during the event including Todd Wolf’s Mather recreation.
The surprise of the event was when President Trump landed at the airport for an event that was being held later that day in Cleveland Ohio.
NEOLUG’s April group meeting was comprised of fun, food, and best of all, playing with LEGO bricks. Using multiple copies of the Go Brick Me set, NEOLUG members built custom BrickHeadz for each other. The leftover pieces were also put to good use in a set draft.
Each member went home with a life-like (albeit somewhat blocky) version of themselves. Here’s EJ Bocan posing with his custom Brickheadz built by Ken Cefaratti.
This February, NEOLUG attended the third annual Canton Kidfest 2018, an indoor family fun day at the Canton Civic Center. KidFest featured activities for the whole family, including games, prizes, crafts, activities, a rock climb wall, inflatables, a petting zoo, live music, and guest appearances by famous characters from sports, television, and movies. Thousands of families visited this year’s event.
NEOLUG was on site, with a display of club member LEGO creations and a large LEGO play area for visitors inlcuding a LEGO “walk of fire,” LEGO balloon sculptures, and LEGO building stations.

NEOLUG member Zach Lewis (and his sons Wesley and Elliot) were recently featured in the Shaker Heights Schools November Newsletter! The article, which you can read here, explains how Lewis came out of his “dark ages of LEGO” and provides various insights into Zach’s architectural building style, specifically delving into his LEGO versions of local buildings including Boulevard Elementary School and CWRU Harkness Chapel.
