Each builder can draw inspiration from Harry Potter to Star Wars, Lego movie, Princess, Community, and more.

We encourage you to reach for the sky and use your imagination to create your dream Lego build. Local businesses are also welcome to participate, as Nick’s Bricks is a highly attended event it is a perfect occasion to advertise and support the community.

If you have something you believe is worthy of sharing please contact Kevin Vitulli at Please include a brief description of your entry, your contact information, and an estimate on the size/footprint of your display.

Nick’s Bricks is named in memory of Nicholas (Nick) H. Vitulli and is an event that he would have loved. Nick passed away in 2016 at the young age of 24 while hiking in Africa. Nick was gentle, kind, joyful and loved life. He was curious and creative and was never afraid to explore possibilities. Nick’s faith, family, friends and fun were most important to him in his life.

Nick loved LEGOS, playing board games and his favorite book was Lord of the Rings. Nick was also known for rocking the flannel, for his love of music and playing the bass. His fantastic imagination and love of play allowed him to maintain and never let go of his childlike heart. Nick’s parents, Kevin and Jayne Vitulli of Wenatchee, WA created the Nicholas H. Vitulli Memorial Fund at CFNCW to honor their son by sharing his love of Legos and play with all children in our region.

“We would like to thank the many community sponsors that help make Nick’s Bricks possible,” said Jayne and Kevin Vitulli.
