    Here are the top LEGOLAND events in 2017.

    LEGOLAND Florida Resort in Winter Haven has an exciting lineup of special events for 2017 that will deliver more fun, more fireworks and more time to enjoy all the brick-tacular entertainment at the place built for kids. Gotham City’s Caped Crusader kicks off an awesome lineup of special events, promising plenty of fun, fireworks and festivities at the popular vacation destination, including two all-new events.

    Here’s what’s happening in 2017:
