A 3-metre-high LEGO dragon sculpture is greeting shoppers at Broughton Park this weekend
A three-metre-high dragon made entirely of LEGO bricks is welcoming shoppers at Broughton until Sunday to celebrate St David’s Day.
The sculpture took six expert LEGO builders five weeks and approximately 210,000 bricks to make exclusively for Broughton.
Located outside Thomas Cook and Costa Coffee, the dragon will no doubt prove a huge hit with selfie-takers. The centre will also be giving away five LEGO sets as prizes for the best selfies uploaded to Broughton’s Facebook page.
Shoppers will also be able to make a donation to Marie Curie as a team of volunteers will be fundraising at the centre over the four days.
Alan Barker, centre manager at Broughton, said: “We thought the sculpture would be a really nice way to mark St David’s Day and celebrate our patron saint. The dragon – who we’ve named Dafydd – is inspired by Welsh flag so it’s even more patriotic.
“A lot of manpower went into building it and we’re so happy with the end result. Hopefully our shoppers will be equally impressed!” Spotted something? Got a story? Send a Facebook Message | A direct message on Twitter | Email: News@Deeside.com
