10 competing teams are stationed throughout the walkable Southern California village.

The Solvang LEGO Building Competition is open for the public to speculate, free of charge.

“The kids are liking walking around. Beautiful weather and all the LEGO masters have been very friendly to all the kids," said parent and Santa Barbara resident, Carly Bobek.

“I hope the kids see that you can build LEGO without a set, see that you can make anything out of it you want, that you can look around the world and go, ‘I want to make that’," said Allyson Gail.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three builders in the competition.

The 1st place winner will receive $5,000.
