If you never really mastered the art of Lego-building as a kid, you're about to get a second chance. The Lego KidsFest is making its first Cleveland stop at the I-X Center Nov. 4-6. More than 3 acres of Legos will be spread out inside the convention center for kids and parents to enjoy, and 12 Lego master model builders will show off more than 40 life-size creations, such as Captain Jack Sparrow, Batman and SpongeBob SquarePants.
