NOVI, Mich. -- It's everything LEGO at "LEGO KidsFest" this weekend at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.  "We've got three acres, that's 150,000 square feet, of interactive, hands-on fun," said Aaron Wartner.

"We're thrilled to be coming to Michigan for the very first time," he told us.  "We'll see over the course of the weekend a good 28,000 people."

"We are sold out for both sessions on Saturday, and it is quite possible that we will sell out on Sunday, so get those tickets in advance," he added.

What are some of the different things kids can do at the event?

"Dozens of different LEGO-based activities.  Some are based on product lines, so LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Games, LEGO Friends.  Others experiences are things that you can't necessarily do at home.  Our big pile of bricks.  Our gigantic map... of the United States that will be filled in by visitors made entirely of Lego bricks," Wartner said.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.
