You can take your love for LEGOs downtown from Sept. 30 to Oct. 1, when the BrickUniverse LEGO Fan Convention makes its way to Cleveland.

Huntington Convention Center hosts the expo, where you can explore impressive, already-constructed LEGO formations or build your own.

You can also meet professional LEGO builders (because that is a job) Jonathan Lopes and Paul Hetherington, plus founder of BrickUniverse, 17-year-old Greyson Beights, who published the book Medieval LEGO, which is meant to teach kids about history via LEGOs.

You can also expect thrilling things like book signings, character meet-and-greets (think Star Wars) and galleries displaying Lopes' and Hetherington's work.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here.
