After you complete your boo-tiful brick creations, display your (Halloween) spirit and show them off during Brick or Treat and Brick Dash.

A Bag Full of Treats During Brick or Treat

Treats, treats and more treats!  If you're coming to Brick or Treat this October, you really don't want to miss out on all the goodies you can get on our Brick or Treat Trail.  You'll walk through the fog and Halloween lights to trick or treat at our themed-houses and get treats to fill your bag.  Complimentary bags are handed out at the start of the trail and Annual Passholders will receive a special keepsake bag.  Of course, you're also free to bring your own trick-or-treat bucket and encouraged to wear your Halloween costumes to make the event even more festive.

A big thanks goes out to all of our Brick or Treat goody sponsors!  Make sure you find the goodies from Airheads, Snyder's, YumEarth, GoGo Squeeze and NFPA.  But, that's not all the yummy treats you'll find.  If you want to see what else we have for you, I guess you'll have to come discover for yourself on the Brick or Treat Trail only during Brick or Treat at LEGOLAND Florida.
