The Geneva History Center welcomes back the Northern Illinois Lego Train Club for a weekend full of Lego fun from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 24, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 25.

The club builds skyscrapers, Star Wars ships, Harry Potter landscapes and more, entirely out of Legos.

This year's show, in conjunction with the Boy Scout exhibition, includes various Boy Scout scenes incorporated into the show.

A hands-on building table will be available and participants will also be able to put their name into a drawing for a custom Lego mini figure.

This event is a special fundraiser for the Geneva History Center.

Admission fee is $5 for adults and $3 for Geneva History Center members and children.

This year, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and leaders will receive a $1 discount if they wear their uniform.

The Geneva History Center is at 113 S. Third St.
