Diwali is known as the ‘festival of lights’ and symbolises the victory of light over darkness. The holiday is known for beautiful colours and designs, including intricate artwork known as rangoli, where patterns are created using traditional materials such as coloured rice or sand.
To honour this annual festival and get everyone involved, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne is hosting a free “make-and-take” LEGO Build on the balcony outside the retail store on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October. Visitors are invited to create their own beautiful mini rangoli design in LEGO and take home as a keepsake – free of charge!
On Saturday 26 October, visitors can also watch on as Model Master Builder Kieran Jiwa creates a large scale LEGO rangoli live build in the traditional way: as a design created on the floor. The final product will be available to view on Sunday 27 October.
