Photoblog: LEGO Star Wars Days at Legoland California 2018

Two years ago, Star Wars contributor James Floyd invited me to my first Star Wars event at the Legoland California Resort and it quickly became one of my favorites places in Southern California to get my Star Wars fix.  On Saturday, June 2, Legoland kicked off the first of two LEGO Star Wars Days #BuildTheForce weekends for 2018.  Continue reading for plenty of photos of Legoland California’s LEGO Star Wars Days, and, if you’re in the area, consider attending the second LEGO Star Wars Days weekend June 9 & 10.
