We visited Paredes de Coura Fan Weekend!
This was our second time, and in few sentences, our impressions:
A first year was fantastic. Second was even better - this time we were not greenhorns, we knew where was what and who's the man for what we needed
Guys from Comunidade 0937 manage to surprise us with some new ideas and solutions for making our stay even more pleasant. Every time we think nothing else can be added, and they brainstorm something new, like Talk Show, Maxifig of their mascot, app etc
But the main benefit of Fan Weekend is socializing, meeting old, dear AFOL friends, making new ones, and spending relaxed time with people more or less same age, with same interest, talking about LEGO bricks
If we can recommend one event, it would be this one. Nice weather, great people, and superb atmosphere :)
