RALEIGH, N.C. -

Build it and they will come. Let them build it, and they'll still come.

Lego KidsFest kicked off Friday at the Raleigh Convention Center.

The sold-out show, which is expected to draw more than 27,000 to downtown Raleigh, features life-sized creations of superheroes, cartoon characters, animals and more. There's also a huge pile of Legos for kids to play with and even learn building techniques from Lego's master builders.

Lego KidsFest runs through March 2.
