PAW Patrol fans will be able to meet their favourite characters this summer – as Blackburn hosts the world’s first PAW Patrol brick trail, built and presented by BRICKLIVE.
The stunning spectacle, featuring 21 of your favourite characters and buildings from the hit Nick Jr show, will be built by BRICKLIVE from brightly coloured toy bricks and placed around the town centre between 23 August and 1 September. Are you all ears?
Characters Chase, Marshall, Skye and the gang will be hosted by venues around the town – which will be rebranded ‘Brickburn’ to celebrate the trail.
Blackburn will be the first place in the world to host the official PAW Patrol brick models, with the pups ranging in size from 75cm to 120cm high. Model builders are on a roll ahead of this summer’s trail, and the mighty models will be unveiled on 23 August.
The trail, organised by Blackburn Business Improvement District (BID), will also feature a 2m tall Lookout Tower using over 65,000 bricks; and a selfie-zone of Marshall’s Fire Truck using a whopping 160,000 bricks.
Competitions related to the trail will be running during the 10-day installation. Families will be able to explore the town and find all the models using the Brickburn trail map and children will also be able to take part in a number of free workshops and interactive building activities.
Across the town, a programme of Brickburn fringe events will also be developed by Blackburn BID businesses, including interactive brick and PAW Patrol themed activities. Details to be announced soon.
Catherine Price, Blackburn BID Manager, said: “The Brickburn PAW Patrol brick trail is an opportunity for Blackburn to come together and celebrate everyone’s favourite childhood bricks. From little ones to big kids, Brickburn will have something for all fans of these iconic building bricks.
“We hope families take advantage of this free event and explore Blackburn town centre as they visit each PAW Patrol character on the trail. The fringe events will keep the whole family busy and with workshops free for all, we hope to ignite imaginations across Blackburn.”
Brickburn’s PAW Patrol BRICKLIVE trail will take place from 23 August – 1 September across Blackburn centre. More details on the trail, interactive zone and fringe programme will be released in due course.
