LegoLand Obama Inauguration


The guys at LegoLand California built this historic scene: Barack Obama taking the Presidential oath of office on the steps of the Capitol in Miniland U.S.A.  President Obama, his wife Michelle, and daughters Sasha & Malia, along with Vice President-elect Joseph Biden are replicated as mini-figures crafted of LEGO bricks. Hundreds of LEGOLAND mini-figures have been invited to witness the inauguration. Pretty Cool!


“More than one-thousand mini-figures have been created out of thousands of LEGObricks to be a part of the festivities. Mini-figures include President-elect Obama and his family, Vice President-elect Joseph Biden and Jill Biden, President George Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynn Cheney along with former President George Bush Sr. and Barbara Bush. Other mini-figures depicting ceremony participants include: Senator Dianne Feinstein, Dr. Rick Warren, Aretha Franklin, John Williams and performers Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo-Ma, Gabriela Montero, Anthony McGill, the Unites States Marine Band, the San Francisco Boys Chorus and the San Francisco Girls Chorus. Park guests can also find Oprah Winfrey in the crowd witnessing this momentous event as well as read fun facts about past inaugurations such as “who gave the shortest and longest inauguration address” and “which inauguration was the first to be televised.” The historic scene is on display from Friday, Jan.16 through Memorial Day Weekend.
