Tallest LEGO Tower

Brazil will be the first South American country to host the Summer Olympics which will be held in 2016, but first the country set their sites on building the world’s tallest LEGO tower, a record previously held by Chile.  The community of Sao Paulo constructed their 500,000 piece LEGO tower last weekend which rose to a height of 102 feet-three inches.  School groups, families both kids and adults, joined in the team effort assembling the independent LEGO bricks that were stacked on top of each other eventually using a crane.
