Washington comes to California
The 56th US presidential inauguration took place outside the US Capitol building on January 20, but guests at Legoland California were also able to enjoy their own brick-built version of this historic event.
Model designers recreated the scene depicting Barack Obama taking the presidential oath of office on the steps of the Capitol in the park’s Miniland USA area. More than 1,000 mini-figures were created out of Lego bricks. Among others, replicas were made of President Obama and his family, vice-president Joseph Biden and Jill Biden, outgoing president George W and Laura Bush, outgoing vice-president Dick Cheney, along with former president George Bush Snr and Barbara Bush.
Whether the Lego Obama fluffed his lines is unknown.
