CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) — This month, Legoland California will celebrate its 20th birthday with new entertainment, desserts, and a special deal for youngsters.

On March 20, Legoland will celebrate its birthday by giving one special park-goer, who is also celebrating his or her birthday, the chance to open the park for the day. The first 1,000 kids in the park will also get free child-size minifigure hands and get to attend a birthday-themed park opening ceremony.

At the center of the party will stand a Lego birthday cake consisting of more than 51,000 Lego bricks, showcasing the attractions added to the park since it opened in 1999.

The festivities continue all year long, with special birthday desserts, pop badges, and more for park guests. Starting March 16 through Sept. 1, a special 20th Birthday Dance Party can be enjoyed daily, filled with music and dancing.

And all year, children ages 12 and under can get into Legoland for free on their birthday.
