Got a LEGO lover (or several) in your house? The BrickUniverse fan expo will be in town Saturday and Sunday with thousands of bricks, models of famous structures and Star Wars-themed activities.

The event, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, includes building areas filled with LEGO and Duplo blocks, more than 70 models (such as a 27-foot USS Missouri, a 24-foot diorama of the World War II Battle of Peleliu, a 6-foot Brandenburg Gate and an 8-foot version of New York City's Woolworth Building), a store and lessons from LEGO experts and builders.

A Star Wars area will let kids build themed creations and participate in a meet-and-greet with characters.

Ticket sales end an hour before the event, which opens at 10 a.m., and can be purchased at
