Chicago, IL, June 11, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Ready. Set. Go. It's a fast and furious start to summer as LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago hosts two LEGO Cars Weekends. The fun runs June 10-12 and June 17-19 and includes two weekends full of LEGO car-themed activities.

Guests at LEGO Cars Weekends are invited to perfect their skills in the pit with car-themed activities including Creative Challenges, Derby Races, LEGO Games, and, for younger builders, LEGO Traffic School where you can drive cars down the streets of LEGO City.

On Father's Day, June 19, dads are invited to take part in the fun with their kids at the first ever LDC Derby. Families can build their LEGO racer at home or create one on-site in the LEGO Cars Building Workshop. Expert Model Builders will be on hand to help dads and kids design their perfect car out of LEGO bricks. Teams will then race their cars against others on the track for a chance to win a number of great prizes.

"Building a LEGO car is fun for kids and the kids at heart. It's also a unique way to spend time with dad and let him know that he's appreciated," said LEGOLAND Discovery Center Master Model Builder, Daniel Morey. "We really want to shine a light on the importance of family and teamwork, and what better way to do it than with a little friendly competition?"
