Bricks and Minifigs brought thousands of Lego bricks to display, and touch at "Lego Lane" at Montanafair.

One draw of Lego Lane is the dozens of intricate Lego builds that Bricks and Minifigs owner Kevin Woods, brought to display.

"I borrow tons of Lego sets from employees, customers, family, and friends so we can put on the biggest, coolest Lego display that we possibly can in the state of Montana here at Montanafair," Woods said.

Kids got the opportunity to flex their creativity in the brick derby. Similar to a pinewood derby, kids can build a car from Lego to race down a track.

The crew at Lego Lane runs several heats per day. The keep the winner of each heat to do something special on the last day of the fair.

"The last time slot that we do we're going to do a tournament of champions where we race all the winning cars from all the races all week long against each other to find out who made the best race cars this week at Montanafair," Woods said.

The top three from the tournament of champions gets a trophy constructed from Lego and a gift card to the Bricks and Minifigs store.

Lego Lane is located in the First Interstate Arena at Metrapark and is open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
