TV-host-turned-mommy-blogger Brooke Burke did the honors, flipping the switch to illuminate the world's largest Lego Christmas tree.
More than 245,000 forest green Lego Duplo bricks make up the tree, which is decorated with more than 240 Lego ornaments.
Legoland's Holly Jolly Holidays runs through Dec. 31. In addition to the nightly tree lighting ceremony (which will feature a randomly selected child visiting the park, instead of celebrities for the rest of the season), the park will feature many holiday-themed Lego creations, including a life-sized Santa and snowman, for kids to pose with.
I particularly enjoy looking for Santa in the park's Miniland displays. Miniland always rewards the sharp-eyed visitor, for you'll never know what mischief you might discover there.
East-coast theme park fans presumably will get their own Lego-themed holiday celebration after Legoland Florida opens next October.Tweet
