Hundreds of cardboard boxes have been painted to look like giant Lego pieces and strategically covered with velcro. At 12 PM in Dolores Park on September 29th, you can build anything you can possibly imagine with them.
The event will be free and open to the public, and will last until people get bored (never) or the authorities intervene!
We want to give a creative outlet to people who have outgrown their building blocks but still remember how awesome it is to create your own castle. Defy Euclidean geometry, construct an epic fortress and recapture your childhood love of buildin’ stuff. Kids can play too! The boxes are sized so a child or an adult can easily work with them.
As the boxes were made using a latex-based paint, we advise anyone with latex allergies to avoid coming into contact with the cardboard castles. We politely request that you refrain from damaging the building blocks or knocking over anyone else’s castle. Please do not take too long a turn building; we want the largest number of people possible to play!
Volunteers will start moving the boxes over at 11 AM, and we’ll cordon off the construction zone so things don’t get too crowded. Please get in touch with email@example.com
if you are interested in getting involved!
